Exploration of the self-consciousness has been a part of the human being’s quest to define oneself as a higher life form. In art, the quest continues through the process of self-portraiture. Self-identity as it is reflected in self-portraits can be categorized three different ways. Autobiography, character replacement and artist as career are definitive categories in which artists have explored their own psyche to further understand their own placement.
In my research, I have found that my self-portrait work can also be placed into the corresponding categories. Each category has become relevant to the creation of my self-portrait work and in turns my definition of self. I am determined to distinguish these categories as they relate to my personal choices in my self-portraits and their significance in artist self-portraits from the past.
