This image goes to the question of how we perceive ourselves? Better yet....how do YOU perceive yourself. Wikipedia defines narcissism as: "Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) is a personality disorder, characterized by exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of empathy for others. People with the disorder are often perceived as arrogant, callous, envious and tend to be exploitative in their interpersonal relationships. They can be excessively preoccupied with personal adequacy, power, prestige and vanity. Those with NPD generally lack emotional awareness and insight into their own condition, and fail to acknowledge that their behavior is at the root of their own problems as well as the problems they cause for others because, as a personality disorder, their thoughts, perceptions, and actions are generally consistent with their sense of self". We are what we think and do. So I ask you, the viewer and artist, where do you stand in your quest for artistic expression and insight? Would love to hear your comments.
