‘Windows No. 3 – Self Portrait’ is based on one of my own x-rays, and is both a cheeky rendition of the traditional artist’s self portrait, and a social comment on what constitutes ‘beauty’.

In this day and age we can manipulate images to how we would like to portray ourselves, but there are no guidelines for ‘internal beauty’.  Is my pelvis too big, is my spine the right shape for society’s expectations?  Who cares?
