Abstract

Many painters in the western tradition have depicted themselves embedded in works of art as participants in the narrative scene. In this presentation, I will explore strategies artists have used to do this and the motivation for doing so, particularly as a means of creating self–identity. I will consider examples of canonical artists who have done this, and my own practice as a painter, as an analogy and model for considering issues of community and inclusion.
