Sumi Ink on Yupo Paper
December 2016 Reflections explores my relationship to self-portraiture. For this piece, I used sumi ink on yupo paper (a transparent plastic paper). Displaying the piece on the side opposite to the one drawn on created a clouded and reversed version of the original (pictured on the right). This purposeful masking of my visage references my reluctance to be completely transparent and vulnerable through my self- portraiture.
