Who Do You Think You Are

Who Do You Think You Are?

An exhibit about identity.  It is said that all work by an artist is a self portrait. As artists, in the act of creating an image, idea, or object we represent ourselves, our psyche our history, even our own particular language. 

In this process, we are either a reflecting ourself to our audience, or the reverse. It is obvious with a self portrait, but when we represent another subject the artist puts his own spirit on that image, calling to mind their own hand, their personal choices, culture and histories.

An artist choses a medium or mediums that most represent the comfort they feel with it, but they are prone to push boundaries and stretch themselves to continually grow within their choices as  they cover new ground.
