Following the idea of portraiture capturing instances of oneself that pertain to the truth of ones' own identity as a whole, I have experimented with this colourful idea.
With a deliberate layering effect of colour, each 'instance' of my self collectively pertains to my identity. This first example bearing just two instances of myself as an experimentation, with the use of colour reflecting the mood and expression of each 'self'. The arching beams (remnants of the original photo) while providing intrigue and a sense of completion to composition as a whole, I think is now a little too abstract not really contributing to my identity.
I later took this further with several more instances of myself and better sense complimentary of colours for a stronger portrait. Each instance overlays each other for an intriguing effect pertaining to the sense of layers in the nature of identity, with the colours providing a visually striking presentation. Again, the lack of background focuses the piece as a whole with less abstract distortions to detract from the piece.
Overall, I am pleased with the result and wonder how much further I can take it visually and conceptually as a whole.
