“The self portrait is a radical time stamp in acceptance, a dedicated, and calculated form of self therapy.”

— VENUSIAN

Self portraiture, for Venusian, serves as a coping mechanism for trauma, anxiety, depression, and identity issues. As a transformative method of self therapy, she captures herself as both healer and the healed. These portraits reflect dedication to self analysis, highlighting the catharsis of self documentation, and its history as a definitive artistic practice.
