The inspiration of this piece arose from introspection. It’s a depiction of the different views a person can have of oneself. It is a distorted self portrait. I took a photograph of my face and then with the help of Photoshop I twisted the image and replicated it. The image dances like a reflection in water. The black contrasting on white gives it a dramatic appeal.
