Edward Munchs selfie
self portraits can be a classic and classy representation of an artist and they’ve been made since the earliest times of any kind of art – from drawings, photographs and even sculptures.
‘selfies’ nowadays turn self portraits from an aesthetic approach, to create a picture of yourself, into an narcissistic waste of your time looking into the camera of your smart phone.
show the world chocolate side of your existence, while asking yourself if you’ve ever worn these cloth in a ‘selfie’. another very disgusting excess since evil wo(men) invented the internet.
my idea is to take self portraits, looking for mirrors wherever I go.
as a result the focus is not on my face, it’s on what surrounds me:
this time I watched a documentary, so featuring a painter tonight: Edward Munch most people associate with his well known ‘the scream’ got obsessed, after defeating his demons, with a magic, upcoming machine called photo camera. Munch said in his early years that he needed his dark side to create art work, but after losing his senses through alcohol and opiate use he retired and took a bunch of self portraits ehh selfies in and around his mansion.
