Self-portrait - Ronak

For my self-portrait, I wanted to express that everyone comes in different shapes and sizes and that even within ourselves, we change over time. From a very early age, we are shown by TV and films very standard ways of what to wear, how to act, and how to talk. However, this does not mean everyone needs to conform to the Hollywood way of life. Each shape, represents a state of being and this can change over a few years, months, days, or even minutes. Sometimes we are rough around the edges and sometimes we are smooth around the edges. In the end, this piece represents that one size does not fit all and by the wise words of theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, "If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."
