SERIOUS SELFIE – SELF PORTRAIT
– Pencil on Fabriano
The work’s title is a contraction in itself. Selifie’s by their very nature are not serious, however the work’s figure is portrayed to have a serious facial expression. Similarly, the hair is a simple topic of discussion, however, issues of individuals overcomplicate hair and essentially enforce their insecurities upon others, thus creating issues surrounding hair. Therefore it is the very nature of intent versus the understanding captured or conveyed parallels the process of intent of capturing an image through a camera lens, however having the image captured not intending on what the photographer wanted it to be.
