Charlie Alan Kraft :: Self Portrait

Thoughts on the picture of self portraits: ( self portraits in general )

How very rare to find a self portrait that contains the very music of the artist themselves. Too often do I find myself looking at Hollywood reproductions of what a person is not instead of what a person is, using the self as a way to express entertainment instead of sacrifice. Self portraits should reflect the rawness of the core inside of ourselves. The empty that no one else can see or hear. When I see painting after painting of eyes and smile or smug lips and casual hair I am reminded of nothing and no piece of the painter has been given to me.
