Del Kathryn Barton
self portrait 'You Are What Is Most Beautiful About Me'
winner of 2008 Archibald prize



Quote:
Barton's self-portrait You Are What Is Most Beautiful About Me also depicts her two children - Kell and Arella.
They are surrounded by plant and flower motifs.
"This painting celebrates the love I have for my two children and how my relationship with them has radically informed and indeed transformed my understanding of who I am," the artist said in a statement.
"The title of the work ... alludes to that utterly profound 'in-loveness' that all mothers have for their children.
"Both my children have taken my world by storm and very little compares to the devotion I feel for them both. The intensity of this emotion is not something that I could have prepared myself for. The alchemy of life offered forth from my inhabitable woman's body is perhaps the greatest gift of my life."

Fiona Lowry
self portrait 'What I Assume You Shall Assume'
winner of 2008 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize



Quote:
The work depicts the artist standing naked in the Belanglo State Forest, where the infamous backpacker murders took place, and is a part of a series.
"I'm more interested in just exploring that kind of paranoia that sits within the landscape, specifically the Belanglo State Forest," she said after accepting the prize.

Jessica Herrington
self portrait 'Awkward Self'
winner of 2008 national youth self portrait prize



Quote:
The digital print depicts Herrington trying to put on a pink, blue and black sweater.
"My practice is about fitting myself and the objects that I make into the world," the art student said.
"It is about the awkwardness of existing, and the awkward struggle between myself and the objects that I make.
"It's about awkward moments in people's lives, about the small, insignificant things like getting caught in a jumper or walking into a doorway or those inappropriate sort of moments that you try to forget about and discard in your memory. I'm sort of bringing attention to it," she added.

Nice idea ot thread, Gius!
"Triple self portrait" by Norman Rockwell (1894-1978)(normanrockwell.com)
His photo at Glen Canyon Dam (usbr.gov).
And the "The art of painting " ( Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienne. 130 x110 cm. v.1662-65) by Vermeer de Delft, because of the similar viewpoint and technical painting attitude with the Rockwell's one.
And a link to some self-portraits
