Sequoyah Aono, Third Prize, Portrait Competition 2013
Interview with Sequoyah Aono, winner of third prize at the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2013 for his self-portrait. Sequoyah Aono writes: From time to time I think about the reason of my existence, who I am, what I can do, how I am needed . . . Whenever I think of this, I feel unstable and unsteady. At such times I feel like carving myself. I have been carving self-portraits one by one mindlessly for confirming my existence, as if some response would come out after completion. At times of losing myself in this life, I just feel so sure of standing on my own feet when working on self-portraits. ---- Self-portrait / Sequoyah Aono / Acrylic on wood with steel base, 2010 / Collection of the artist Music: "Budding" by Broke for Free: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Broke_For_Free/Gold_Can_Stay/Broke_For_Free_-_Gold_Can_Stay_-_01_Budding https://soundcloud.com/broke-for-free Used under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives (aka Music Sharing) License.
