Amanda Cotton’s project appropriately named ‘Self Portrait’ can relate to many people. It shines a light to our insecurities regarding oily faces by using them as primary mediums to share a memory. The dirt, makeup, and oils are like evidence to the day the face has witnessed. Indeed, there is a difference to how we may feel once we wipe our faces clean after a long day as you become confronted with how you carried yourself during the day, whether it was a stressful or fun day for example. But one thing for sure is that relief to finish the day off with a clean face that you can keep on touching without worry.
