Self portrait 2

This is the second of a series of self portraits I did over a summer - and the first based back at the old farmhouse I grew up in. Finding myself home for the summer, I suddenly saw many parallels between the nature on the farm and my condition. This piece was inspired by the cabbage moths devouring our garden vegetables. I could imagine their caterpillars munching away at my back and even created small holes in the paper where I imagined they'd eaten through.
