Self Portraits

My self portraits come in forms of a boy, a girl, or the combination of the two. The girl persona expresses a part of me that I cherish and protect from the messy outside world, which is essentially the most genuine, relaxed, spontaneous self; she signifies openness and vulnerability. The boy is a visualization of my self-protective nature and a general way I present to the world as a shield basically, in order for the deeper "girl" persona to exist. I believe the boy and the girl one day will be integrated.
