Baroque Selfies

Featuring: Leon Gallery and Matthew Harris
Project: Baroque Selfies

Artist Statement:
“My recent series of “Baroque Selfies” questions the ways in which an individual gains social status. Wealth, physical appearance, and charming personality too often trump wisdom, compassion, and humility. Failure to gain the attention and approval we crave feeds our insecurities and drives us to try even harder. With the elaboration of social media, we are bombarded with even more opportunities to curate our public lives.  These works serve both as generalized portraits of human vulnerability and as self portraits that question my own susceptibility to self-centered perspectives.”
