I got around to post this video that is part of my senior show. These are my MRI’s that were related to my jaw surgery. Hopefully the projection works. Send some good vibes tomorrow when I instal it!
Here’s another portrait, it’s purposely supposed to look sketchy and not finish as a response to the feeling that I will always be a work in progress
16” x 20”
Acrylic on panel
Its really bad quality but I’ll scan it when I am done soon
Test print x-ray
I am doing a bunch of self portraits regarding my recent jaw surgeries of before, during, after and how I perceive myself through societies standards. So there will be around 6 self portraits of me which is really uncomfortable because I have to stare at images of myself or my reflection the whole time. For the longest time I can remember I try to avoid my face as much as possible when I grew up. Its great that I can look at my reflection and be content when I see myself.
Now there will be half a dozen pictures of me in my senior show but I don’t want to come off as as this self centered being that people should pity me, think I am being very conceited or something. I’ve been a very self conscious person and I guess I get it from being bullied in my youth and society around me.
But then again I should be proud of how far I’ve come and I overcame so many obstacles. This senior show is more than my jaw surgery but this transformation to coming to terms to who I am and accepting that fact that I am not perfect but in fact I am finally happy. So yeah thats part of my senior show. Stay tune
