Self Portrait for the Wacom Talent Audition.
"The Default Setting" 2013. (Montage.)
This is my Submission for the Behance Wacom self portrait Audition.
In this work, I have questioned how I view (and have felt about) self portraits.
I have chosen to use montage as my experiment this time.
The individual elements include, an Icon of my own hand, and Applied images from my earlier Acrylic on canvas works. "This is the part of the process that I feel at home with" , and gives me an excuse to "Remix" my earlier work, and to suggest my Influences.
This has been a difficult (but enjoyable ) exercise, and the work has gone through certain stages, you can view earlier attempts here . All in all, it took 3 weeks to complete, (with a lot of Tea, and chin stroking).
I used Photoshop, Corel Painter, digital camera, Sellotape, A lot of great music, and a scanner to produce this.
