About The Artwork

I was brainstorming different ways to approach this project and it was exciting and a bit brain bending at first. I was focused on trying to interpret Van Gogh in a contemporary context. What I love about his work is his intensity and his ability to convey beauty and pain. Everything is always turned all the way up and that radiates out from his canvases. It made me think about a quote from a Nicholas Hornby book where he talks about how you can just hear the pain in Nick Drake’s voice when he sings. So I started coming up with a musical muse for each self portrait. Sometimes including lyrics, references to cover art, I wanted it to be a bit of a game for the viewer to figure out who each piece is referencing. When I was working on these avatar paintings Taylor Swift rereleased red and the symbolic use of the red scarf in All Too Well felt ubiquitous so I had to place it on Van Gogh. The background is a landscape based off of a photo during Evermore
