A photograph is a visual epigram, offering a single thought or statement. I have removed the constraints of a traditionally created likeness, instead offering an abstract, digitally deconstructed arrangement of my identity. My self-portraits are shaped by the action and interplay with other layers just as our actual physical appearances are shaped by choices and interactions with the world.The images, comprised of small squares layered upon larger squares, create unique composite images with the squares establishing spatial relationships with other squares based on the hues and sizes of each square. The almost abstract images offer barriers of color, challenging the viewer to delve deeper into seeing me. How many images are necessary to reveal the truth about an unbelievably complex person?
