Portraits and portraying a character through for example painting has always interested me. Perfectionism and insecurity are characteristics that I inherited from my father and mother. The inner battle with my perfectionism and insecurity has resulted in multiple experimental three-dimensional (self-)portraits.
The erratic imperfect character like lines of the iron wire are in strong contrast with my perfectionistic nature like the pictures of my father and mother. The final portrait imagined that I am a fusion of my father and mother. I am them and they are me: zijzijnmij.
