24″ x 37″ in Three Panels – Monotype and Acrylic on Hardboard
I made this as an assignment for my Intermediate Painting class at PSU last year. The title of the project was An Exquisite Corpse from the Surrealist game of taking the last part of a drawing or a poem and writing or drawing something new, folding the paper to reveal the tail end and passing it along to the next person. It had nothing to do with the actual results.
This a monotype of three sides of myself. Janessa helped me with it. She’s a lot stronger than she looks and I felt my skull pop when she pressed my head into the board. I do very few self portraits and this one is my favorite.
