The philosopher Wittgenstein insisted that some things cannot be said, but they
can be shown.

 

The self is a myth of that kind.

 

It’s what I’m looking for when I draw a portrait.

 

A friend once sent me a text message asking herself: “Who am I? Where am I? What the fuck am I doing with my life? Argh.”

 

I was drawing a series of portraits of her at the time.

 

I don’t know what she sees in the portraits, but I’m still drawing her mythic face.
