Creating a self-portrait frees the artist from a need to flatter the subject. Here Diné artist Sheldon Harvey reveals not what he looks like, but perhaps what he feels like. Harvey’s painting allows the viewer to appreciate the risks that artists take every day in expressing themselves in their works of art and sharing those objects with the public.

Crear un autorretrato libera al artista de la necesidad de adular al sujeto. En este retrato, el artista diné Sheldon Harvery no revela su apariencia, sino quizá sus sentimientos. La pintura de Harvey permite al observador apreciar los riesgos que asumen los artistas cada día al expresarse a través de sus obras de arte y compartir dichos objetos con el público.
