DAILY SELF-PORTRAITS

 

Over the last 20 years I've created at least one self-portrait every day and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I started this project on March 30th, 1995 and at present I've made over 10,000 of them. Like fingerprints, snowflakes and DNA they are all different, no two self-portraits are the same.  For hundreds of years, artists have been putting themselves into representations of the world around them. With this work I am doing the exact opposite. I put the world around me into representations of myself as I find this more true to my CNS (central nervous system) and how we all process and percieve experiences.  Almost all of the self-portraits are 8.5" x 11.5" and in hardbound sketchbooks. The video artist David Larcher titled this work, "The Endlessly Reconstructing Auto-Autopsy", but I just call them "my SPs".
