Self Portrait

Hello, and welcome!

This is a self portrait i made in Dec 2015 right after my birthday.

Often we wear masks – I have a whole bunch of them. There is just a few people that see the real me. I made this artwork with the intention to show more of my real self, my human face, with the oh so many different masks, almost disappearing in the back – and my spirit (here in form of the fox) bursting prominently out front.

It is difficult not to hide, I think. Society teaches us, that our real self is not good enough.

Instead I think, it is time to let it burst out and shine, in every way possible.
