Concerned with autonomy and the philosophical debate surrounding indeterminism and often employing taming of chance in my practice, I don’t renounce the artist’s autonomy, I rather display a secular comment on its notions and traditions.
I am a painter painting myself
both destroying and creating
with each captured moment of a performance
I present what I am, and add to myself what I want to be
my reflection in art becomes my master
and each self portrait lives for itself and removes me.
“To reveal art and conceal the artist is the art’s aim.”
-Oscar Wilde ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’
