Self portrait

Description

My commentary is needed (people noting me) so here it is: I am tired of plain and predictable beauty and I think there are less than few things beautiful about me, I do have a creepy gaze and lots of dark thoughts on my mind. I think this self portrait expresses just how I feel today.

This is an interesting picture especially after reading the artist's statement. i like the use of minimal colours except for the face and background. Why is the background red and is it related to the splatters on the shoulder? Red is often associated with anger and blood, so just how dark are those inner thoughts.

I really like that facial expression, it is so very human. It looks relaxed, almost smiling but the eyes aren't smiling. For me the look has more of a "you've attracted my attention. You really shouldn't have done that and you really don't want to know what I'm thinking about."

For someone trying to show a darker side this is very well done. So sweet, so innocent, so predatory!
