Selfportraits

SELFPORTRAITS 1, 2, 3 AND 4

Selfportraits are caricatures about myself. I find it interesting how people, especially women, want to present themselves when they’re taking pictures of themselves. They think about best sides of their face and practice their best smile in front of the mirror. In the paintings, I exaggerate the size of my eyes or emphasize my lips. I thought about what people have told me about my appearance and how it has affected to my identity. Often they’ve praised my eyes. Half accidentally the eyes became the most emphasized part of every painting.
