A Gaze during Responding with Action - the Invisible Other behind a Self-Portrait
Self-portrait as a special genre in western painting has long been used by artists as devices in pursuits of self representation and cast of images that conveys meanings and awareness of religious, social and political issues. A self-portrait is the result of the artist’s efforts to reflect the presence of an entity under impact of various ideologies and serves as a carrier responding to the social environments. In this study and creation of a series of paintings, the author starts with painting self-portrait as a format and tries to construct the proto type of self-portrait cast by the subjective desire under the gaze of a novel third party coined by the subject, and in turn to build up the visual presentation of the subject in picture. In theoretical ground, the author tries to explore the subject construction arguments found in the psychoanalysis by Jacques Lacan and the ideology postulated by Louis Althusser, and thus clarifies step by step the correlations between subject construction and ideological mechanism, furthermore uses the results obtained through the exploration and discussion as support for the creation theory presentation. In the course of this study, the author tries to extract the awareness from the personal creation state through observation on both the ego and the field of self-survival, and furthermore makes the representation of mimicry in the self-portrait prototype serves as one of the fashions of information transferring for personal creation awareness. At last, through presenting the argument of this study and ultimate presentation of the picture representation, the author strategically attaches the messages of the subject and ideology to pass on intentionally to a “Gazing vs. Being Gazed” spectator structure. And through launching the spectator structure, the study puts the spectator into the “invisible field” constructed by the author, trying to make the spectator receive the message through the course of participating in the work creation and to achieve the goal of transferring the author’s message during the intervention of the spectator, and in turn trying to influence the spectator’s awareness and lead the spectator to adapting to another way of regarding the self and the surrounding where the self rests through reasoning alone.
