Mixed Media Self-Portraits
by Madison Elgner
Photography has given me the freedom of self-expression, and honestly a sense of self-worth. This medium has given me greater confidence as an artist than drawing and painting. Upon discovering photography I could finally convey what was inside my head and actually be satisfied with my results.
Very few of my images are made with a motive behind them. My intent is to remain authentic to my inner vision, make it visible, and share it with others. I enjoy playing with color, and experimentation, and I hope that is evident when one views my pieces. I am not going to lie and say I am trying to transform the world and your minds with my work, with their deep-rooted meanings, because what’s the point? But I will say I hope I have drawn your attention by the directness and honesty of my imagery.
