There’s something that’s been on my mind lately. It’s about honesty, as a person and as an artist. I feel like I am not able to be entirely honest, for fear of criticism, misunderstanding, fitting in a certain definition of blogger, you name it.
It can be a little bit frustrating, as you may well imagine. I am interested in experimenting with self image, it’s part of my creativity (I’ve mentioned this before). These days I am feeling more adventurous. Possibly because I got tired of playing “safe” all the time, maybe because I’m getting tired of doing the same old thing and as I’ve said before, I want/need change. I need to experiment more and be more creative. I don’t want to carry on feeling stale. I like modifying my image by exploring the way I dress, but I would like to go beyond that. Not as far as Orlan, who constantly changed her appearance through cosmetic surgery, but at least look into different facets of my psyche by creating different looks using makeup, accessories, you name it.
Here are some weird ass photos I did, using some items I had lying around the house. I will probably be making more of this type of thing in the future. I hope that at least some of my regular readers will like this. You can’t always please everyone so I thought I might as well just please myself! It’s a challenge, and it would be great to embark on it with all you guys!
