Slef-portraiting, the most decontracted and casual portrayal process for me. ideas of doing selfportraits come and go, sometimes I suddenly catch one and realize it, mostly on paper but canvas happens to get involved too once the pushing is too exuberant.
There is no mean od keeping an visual diary like Van Gogh or Frida Kahlo used to do, I just work and analyse my face when I feel like. Nevertheless, I can say there are some stange pushings making me relaise a portrait when something important is going on in my head, much often under life-change or other similar circumstances.
I found one self-portrait dating back to 2006 shortly after my first voyage to Scotalnd paying a visit to my aunt ( I didn’t take a picture of it). I do remember another one I worked on while living in Brussels (now in private collection). In Paris I got to work on two or three of them in various and quiet diverse styles.
