Self-Portrait with Brain
Part of the Excellent Works of the Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize.
I visualise my continuing internal struggle and my desire to understand how my brain works. The glass is elevated above the panel. This creates depth and shadows underneath. When you move past, the background painting seems to move a little behind the glass. This symbolises my desire to look inside, not sure what to find. I can visualise my brain on the outside, but that is not a product of reality, only of my imagination. Which stems from my brain.
