Francisco de Goya - Self portrait series

A study of illusion and reality, parody, humour and humanity

This was an artist who at first wanted to taste blood, and a man who thought the very ills of society. In dreams, he languished over his civil obligation. In this self portrait, I felt a man who knew who he was going to be. Determined, fierce and sensual in his ways. But in a way, I was locked in time, unable to see past what I saw. Myself, so matched, so permanent, so frightening.
