I draw the self-portraits of other artists (Masaccio, Joseph Wright of Derby, Dana Schutz, Mary Beale, Hyacinthe Rigaudon, and others) and also myself. I draw the selves they present. I re-present their introspection. I observe, draw, reflect, alter, refine. My eyes flicker to my own reflection. As we look at self-portraits we reflect on ourselves.
Laura Cumming writes of the self-portrait trinity of image-object, private self, public face. The drawings are presented as triptychs, like the three different views of oneself in a dressing table mirror.
