For my gallery, I chose to focus on the great diversity in the history of self portraits. As an artist, I've always been fascinated in self portraits. My face is the one I'm most familiar with, obviously, which takes out an element of study when doing a portrait that lets me really get to the meat and potatoes of the art I'm trying to make. Intensely studying one's own face also allows and artist to grasp subtleties of human anatomy that would slip by the unmindful observer. A self portrait reveals much about an artist's view of themselves, and gives a great timeline of the evolution of an artist's style.
