Art: Reflections Of Me by Artist Kim Loberg

Self portraits, 'selfies,' make me a little uncomfortable. I'm usually the one behind the camera lens, not in front of it. I shot this image of me looking into a mirror. (Part of the curved frame of the mirror is visible in the bottom corner). The original assignment was to create a melancholy composition. Well, this is me looking rather depressed even though I'm normally much happier.  :)

I then took the image and re-created it as an etching for a set of dry point, hand-pulled prints. There are five prints to the 'Reflections of Me' set plus the artist's proof.

For EBSQ's 'Selfie' Exhibit, I used two opposite images and fused them together to create 'Beside Myself.' They are both shown below.

I wasn't going to add the original photograph to EBSQ's 'Selfie' Exhibit, but decided to since it was the muse for my other two entries. :)  (See, happy, happy, happy).
