So far, I’ve got seven pictures out of eight for my self portrait project. The last portrait is going to be of Snooki from Jersey Shore. Here is my artist statement from an earlier post:
The main idea of this project is to challenge the ideals behind beauty and the female role. I’m poking fun at these ideals by dressing up as iconic females throughout history – present day and using black light paint as my makeup. My concept has whimsical and mysterious qualities to it making these famous women look ominous yet playful.
This series is going to be exhibited in the CCBC Dundalk gallery in building K from May 18th – June 23rd.
Looking forward to the end of the semester!
