New drawings, 3/25/07

March 25, 2007 at 6:27 pm (art, culture, drawing, interesting, life, painting, personal)

Here are two new ones I worked on over the weekend. One of my ongoing obsessions is this idea that we don’t really know what we look like. Like, short of building a wax replica of myself (and even that would be an approximation), I truly don’t know what I look like, because the closest I’ve ever gotten to seeing myself is either a reflection (which reverses the image) or a photo (which flattens it, which mirrors do too).

I don’t know, that’s the kind of thought that freaks me out if I really think about it for a while.

Anyway, here are the drawings:


See the second one bigger and better here.

    As much as I think we don’t know what we look like to ourselves, imagine how much other people don’t know what we look like…. what we really look like. People see you, but do they really see you or what you project? I also think it’s interesting to think about Narcissus. Ever looking into the reflection. In love with his own reflection. Not really himself, but what he thinks he sees. Do you think that there were ever any ripples in his pond? That he was in love with the shiny, liquid image… quivering and dancing on the surface. I wonder.
