A self portrait

African Woman

I identify myself with Africa. My ancestors settled here in the mid 19th Century and my children love living here. The imagery however is of a square peg in a round hole. That very much sums me up.

The African image was created through multiple layering and distortions of the geometric design into which it is inserted. The portrait was created in "paint" using a "crayon". This was converted to sepia and distorted with the illusion effect. The geometric theme at it's base was a collation of the geometric design. This portrait was given a simple black frame and then collated with the African theme. The colours are non exact representations of our flag.
