Give me myself/Gestalt self portrait

by reap
The Give me myself (Gestalt studies) constructs a surrealistic atmosphere that implies the challenge to accept change.

The Give me myself works are graphite drawings that depict one's search for their true self. The mask represents the persona one reveals to society while concealing the true self; whether it be out of fear, to fit in, etc. These pieces evoke the question - Do we accept change, or continue to hide behind the masks we create for ourselves? The Gestalt theories of visual perception were incorporated to display meticulous attention to detail, and forms that provide rhythm and tension allowing the viewer to complete a holistic world subconsciously in their mind. REAP incorporates the properties of the Gestalt theories - Emergence, Reification, Multistability, and Invariance.
