Autoportrait – Luc Lapôrte
A self-portrait may be the answer to this equation in one unknown: the self.
Eternally superficial, beauty gives us access to the profound, hidden meaning of nature. Seeing one’s reflection is to experience inner harmony; one that ignites an aesthetic emotion that, through the gaze, is able to dissolve all inner conflicts.
It is not forbidden to be fascinated, swept away, spellbound by one’s own image. Aesthetic judgment is reflective judgment. What fascinates us really? Beauty itself or that which it conceals? There is nothing here to hide for this is all about the self. I confide without holding back. There lies a promise of shared happiness.
I look at myself and in that self perceive the beauty of the world. I embrace the gentle violence of meaning, one that enters me through the doors of sensitivity.
Gaze into your image to have a clear mind and heart. Like an intimate and visual diary, the self-portrait reveals the truth or fiction of your own face at any given time. Repeat the process as many times as necessary. The self-portrait is, beyond all doubt, conducive to contemplation.
Delve into the depths of the self by perusing the surface. Welcome the fluid metaphor for it fits into the frame. The first faithful surface, well before the mirror, it is like the ancestor of the technique of immortalizing one’s own reflection.
The beautiful Narcissus is the eternal witness. Seeing his face upon the waters, he fell in love.
