Lame title, like “walk all over me” or somesuch nonsense

02/13/2011

It’s a painting! It’s a sculpture! It’s fashion! It’s a self portrait! It’s all of those things!

It was originally just going to be a fairly straightforward painting of myself–excessively yellow, yes, but otherwise normal. It was supposed to be a continuation of an Asian-y caricature self portrait I did some years ago. Unfortunately, or fortunately, it sucks really hard and I was going to scrap it. At the time, I was also thinking about the whole point of art and what sort of function art and the artist has in today’s society, so I cut the canvas off its frame and made the painting into a pair of shoes.

The upper part is canvas and acrylic paint. The soles and heels are cardboard covered in more canvas, and lined with felt.
