[ISEA96] Artist Statement: Alain Sutt – Selections of Self Portraiture

Artist Statement

The content of my work deals with the exploration of myself through self-portraiture. I use modified self-portraiture as a basis for investigating and affirming my fears and strengths. An integral aspect of the content is in the process involved in devising the image. The significance of the process in the content is that it takes many steps to complete the image, and at each step the image is changed. By using a computer as one of the steps in the process it increases the possibilities of the directions the image may be going in. I never know what the final image is going to be. Therefore the more possibilities there are, the more likely I am of discovering more about myself through this process.
