God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.

William Shakespeare’s drama goes along with my perception of the portrait.

Everybody has two faces, the one God made us with and the one we tend to create to adjust and benefit from current or permanent circumstances. Admitting that idea, in fact, contradicts Shakespeare’s thought. We have plenty of faces, each for each element of our character. And that variety of characteristics, thus variety of faces, is fueled by our surroundings, by people around us or involved in our life. That is the purpose of a portrait for me, to provoke the face you think you hide when nobody’s looking.
