Catalogue Note

"'Since you are always around' was always one of the descriptions I heard to define self-portraiture. I was not fascinated with myself as much...However at times, I could not resist myself as a subject. I used my head as the subject for a test canvas to enhance my skills with gold leaf and iridescent paints."
