Retrato Auto

Rodrigo Menéses | Recorded

The Auto Portrait prints portfolio explores portraiture as a source of expression that addresses personality, emotion, etc. as symbolic possibilities.

At present, the use of the portrait has been potentiated with mobile devices with the selfie as an instrument of here I am. As a counterpart Portrait Auto explores it from the existential I am.

Technically, the characteristic black of the engraving is exploited as the shadow or irrational content of the human being. The expressive possibilities of the drypoint technique are a means to obtain strong lines that, when obsessively overlapped, dark planes and forceful shapes are achieved.
