SELF-ISH—Self-portrait Series

  • SELF-ish​​​​​​​
  • SELF-ISH deals with social issues that perpetuate double standards, ownership inequalities and gender. With comical undertones that range from literal to conceptual, the goal of this series is to shine a light on the different standards for women. By painting self-portraits, I'm confronting my image, against what society expects. 

    SELF-ISH color palate consists mostly of pastels because even though the subject matter is gloomy, the final pieces aim to attract people like candy.

    This series is acrylic on canvas and was completed between 2015—2016.
  • This series was completed between 2015-2016 and consists of traditional and non-traditional self-portraits that deal with identity, obsession and pressure.
  • One of the SELF-ish pieces. "Through the Canvas" is currently on display at the Hanover Street Gallery in Baltimore, MD.
