Self Portrait: An Autocosmology (part 1)
Entering the conversation Kazimir Malevich started on the philosophy of perception, I consider what happens when the chaos of creation makes itself known to the experiencer.
The self portrait is the piece without the black rectangle. The pieces with a black rectangle are contemplations.
My intention for this work is to reproduce the contemplation pieces in various locations around the world.

Quin de la Mer is an artist known for their conceptual work. Crossing media boundaries, de la Mer’s practice includes painting, alternative photographic processes, hybrid literary-visual work, new media/digital art, and moving image art. Heavily influenced by the power, beauty, and value of the autonomous self in conflict with the pain, destruction, and disempowerment that comes with collective embodiment, Quin’s works typically marry philosophical notions with artistic practice.
