the problem with self-portraits

by minima whatever

The problem with (drawn, painted) self-portraits: they are all of artists. Worst of all: ‘the artist as artist.’ Portraits of the artist as person, lover, parent, scholar, gardener, anything else are really more interesting. The artist-as-artist may just be the most boring subject in the world. They all look the same.

Selfies are a relief.
