Art and identity meld in this poignant discovery of self by artist Kurt Weston. The question of who we are has echoed through history, from the first self-conscious hand print (the first work of art and really a self-portrait, if you think about it) on a cave wall to today’s YouTube channels. The complicated position of the artist is questioned when he or she becomes both the creator and the subject. Weston speaks from experience about how the world of art and self are fused together in the raptness of a self-portrait.
