One is never and can never be the same person twice. The self-portrait captures a moment beyond a physical depiction of the artist. It’s a record of one’s state of mind that projects a glimpse of their temporary identity. In a world where society uses social media to project their ideal selves, Armando Cabba explores the more concealed side of the human condition through self portraits. As much as an emotion can reoccur, the way we experience it is never duplicated. The resulting work grants the viewer a glimpse of who the artist sees reflected back at him.
