Artist's description:

Self-portrait reproduction is a materialization of notion, evidence of experienced reality, self-observation, self-love and self-hatred.

I have started to materialize my self-perceptions, to study my portrait, body, set of lines, surface, soaked of water ink. My drawings were not just real images of my portrait and figure but they become a psychological study of static face/figure. Each new drawing was my other Self.
During this process of self-creation, I have started from my own being, my face, my state of mind, but always with an invisible and automatic wish to create portraits of all people, because we all experience the same or similar state of mind. Static form includes inner concentration and sense of self-perception. The man is viewed as an individual who has feelings and thoughts. The terms of awareness and experience, as a phenomenological terms, is emerging as origin of subjective expression.

Materials used:

ink on jute canvas
