Mythologies of Self

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.
