Second Self

Sometimes when I'm on the internet I drop into a wonderful world of goodness today is one of those days. I love the way Meryl plays with 2D & 3D in this series. 

Artist Statement 

Second Self reconsiders identity through portraiture by incorporating drawing and sculpture. Representing the complexities of identity, the drawings and sculptures act like masks or personas to conceal and change the subject’s identity. Persona has come to define the individual for the public while concealing the real person. The mask, then, is like the second self.
