SELF-PORTRAITS

 

For over 20 years now I have created at least one Self-Portrait everyday and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I started this project on March 30th, 1995 and at present I have created over 10,000 of them. Like fingerprints, snowflakes and DNA they are all different, no two of them are the same.  For hundreds of years, artists have been putting themselves into representations of the world around them. With this work I am doing the exact opposite.  I put the world around me into representations of myself as I find this more true to my CNS (Central Nervous System) and how I experience, process and interpet sensory phenomenon.  All of the self-portraits are size 8 1/2" x 11" and in hardbound sketchbooks.  The video artist David Larcher titled this work, "The Endlessly Reconstructing Auto-Autopsy", but I just call them my "SPs".
