This book presents a year's long study, where the researcher-artist engages herself within the activity of self-portrait drawing, facing the products and employing them both as research instruments and theme. The research takes interests in this unique activity, in its significance in an individual’s or an artist’s life, and in psychological, philosophical and artistic implications associated with and deriving therefrom.
The research integrates the artistic activity, which is perceived as a research in itself, combined with a scientific research method, bearing the spirit of a ‘’grounded theory’’. This book introduced the unique research method, which is described as ‘’art-based research", further shedding a new, broad light on the common phenomenon, known as ‘self-portrait drawing’.
