the first real image (as i have also used vanity and little dead girl ) done for current uni project(2010) to use self portraits in poster format to self promote and gain international recognition. ambitious, i know, but it seems to be fun right now.
this i called passionate thought as i feel passionate about acheiving the task set before me by my universty lecturer, and i wanted a reason to explain the red eyes.

you may be asking how this is art, the whole point is to explore how promotion posters enhance public awarness of art and artisits, which is the reason they are also self portraits. this is art because im trying to prove that art is not just about the contemporary thinking we all adopt where the must be a major idea behind the work, but it also must be visualy pleasing to an uneducated mind to have a wide variety of possible followers of ones work. in order to continue being successful, one must be recognised and liked. think of artists like andy warhol and sydney nolan who achevied their fame through their own devices.

I’m a fruit cake. a dark, professional one. be scared. or enthralled. either way enjoy

    LOVELY photo! Very NICE face/eyes! ;-)

    It’s an interesting thing you said there…
    in order to continue being successful, one must be recognised and liked.
    I guess, I’m going to always have to go through that dilemma…am I doing art to please the general public…/or, am I doing art, instead, purely just to please me?! Frankly, I think, I would much prefer doing art purely just to please myself; but, then, sticking to that route might be the surest way for ARTISTS to STARVE…!!! Ultimately, it might actually be necessary to stoop down low and bow to the pressure of far more commercial needs; or, in other words, GET TO EAT!

  • =D why thankyou Paul
    in order to continue being successful, one must be recognised and liked.
    it does begin to question art, is it real or just for the masses. i know i would prefer if it was solely for my own enjoyment, but as you say that is a sure way to starve. in terms of this project I was doing I referencing alot of Any Warhol and his ideas on the celebrity artist and commercial art, basically to give a clear idea, but that’s not to say he was right lo
