Interesting new theme: Express Yourself! – How to put self expression in an image, and isn’t each thing we create (be it a painting or writing or a photograph) a sort of self expression? And beyond it, aren’t we expressing ourselves directly by the clothing we wear, and the way we present ourselves in public?
This museum moment is a reflection on the theme – with art as means of expression, and the styling of our appearance as another kind of expression.

“Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can offer with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation, but of the adopted talent of another, you have only an extemporaneous, half possession.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
