THE BLACK MIRROR, THE WORLD OF GOTTFRIED HELNWEIN
Artist of inner Turmoil.
Toshiharu Ito

Gottfried Helnwein's works from the 1980's are represented by the self-portraits in his "Black Mirror" series.
However, these works reach far beyond the boundaries of the ordinary self-portrait.
They reflect the inner wants and desperation which lies within the viewer's own self.
Helnwein points out the new form of the modern self-portrait which involves the creator and viewer alike.
