Narcissism and The Self-Portrait

This piece is for an exhibit at the Ann Street Gallery in Newburgh, New York.

When presented with the topic “Narcissism and The Self-Portrait,” my mind immediately went to how we present ourselves online. Selfies, dating apps profiles, Facebook updates and twitter feeds all present the our masks.

This is in a makeup compact that Jordan Faye Block gave to me. I like the compact’s layers and levels, and especially the mirror. It will be featured in her Small Wonder’s show, too.
