    About The Work

    The image, a rare example of self-portraiture for the artist, was constructed using digital collage which was then made into a screen, which the final work was printed from. The artist's face has been superimposed over an existing photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald; through the layering and screen printing process the two images have melded seamlessly into one. Gonzales explores the idea of historical representation, patriotism, political power and responsibility, both of the viewer and the artist, in much of his work. In Self Portrait as a Young Marine, Gonzales presents himself both as patriot and dissident.
