Artist Statement:
Exploring the multi-layered complexities of the human personality, and variations of perceived identity & emotive responses.
How do we see ourselves? How does our perception of ourselves & others change according to our beliefs, experiences & relationships?
These questions & analysis form the foundations of the framework for this series of self-portraits. Relating to both personal & societal perceptions of, and responses to, sexuality, identity & grief. As the narrative for this series, my aim is to combine these elements in the hope of taking my observations of strong & often complex emotions and thought processes into forming a challenging & thought provoking connection with the viewer.
I realized that using me as the subject was the strongest and most honest way of projecting & portraying the elements and emotion necessary, this made the use of self portraits a natural process for this series.

    You know your angles and your angels. Beautifully executed concept, Michael. Your dramatic good looks serve you so well. All of your self-portraits are absolutely amazing. Visually and emotively, this strikes a strong note. You know how to make the most of angles and light. FAVED!

  • Hi Jaeda, coming from you, this is quite a compliment, thank you so much for your continued interest & support of my works, as you know, angels & angels sometimes go hand in hand :)
    Many thanks

    At the risk of being stalkerlicious i had to come back for another look ;). The wardrobe and make-up are flawless. Your work is profound, as it always invites us to examine and question ourselves. You invite us into a space where honesty and personal freedom can be reached inside those moments where we experience your imagery and narration. I realized that using me as the subject was the strongest and most honest way of projecting & portraying the elements and emotion necessary, this made the use of self portraits a natural process for this series. <—absolutely!

  • Not at all stalkerish Jaeda! Haha, your thoughtful & insightful comments are very much appreciated, and as an artist who also works in the SP genre, you are aware of how much work goes into producing this type of work…Thank you so very much! :-)
