Art Tour #2: Red Self-Portrait

While my bachelor’s degree is in business, I also studied design and fine art at Buffalo State College and UB. This is a self portrait made with a reverse painting method. The board was covered in ink and the image was made by bleaching away the light areas. It’s a comment on public persona and what’s really behind the mask. While we all tend to be more dramatic in college, there is some truth to this still, for most if not all of us.collegeselfport
