Making Meaning Through Self Portraits


by : 
Naomi S.


I compose self portraits as a way to express myself and to expand my AP art portfolio. My project will examine the way different techniques used by famous artists were employed to frame personal and cultural meaning (for example, how self portraiture was used to deal with issues like mortality, emotional stress and cultural events). By studying techniques and works from art history, I will use different famous artists' techniques to create a series of self portraits to explore the relationships between artist and subject.
