Self Portrait – Educated Pig, 1966
lithograph, ed. 50, 30 x 22"

The self-portrait was the end of my publicity series, and the beginning of my Deckle-Edge statement: of forces, visually, meeting or parting. The self-portrait is the physical man- ifestation of the spiritual 'I am.' And each 'I am' is a unique force that meets and parts, yet, the collective and uni- versal awareness is such that 'I am' is forever. RP

about the artist

Roland Poska pioneered the medium of handmade paper in contemporary art. Poska’s discoveries began in graduate school with the simple question, "what can a simple piece of paper really become?" Poska’s show at the Milwaukee Art Museum July 4th, 1976, was the first major paper-painting exhibition in the United States.

Poska pioneered the medium of handmade paper in contemporary art. His discoveries began in graduate school with the simple question, "what can a simple piece of paper really become?" Working with 100% cotton fibre and the purest pigments, Poska has created a distinctive organic form subtly delivering a profound narrative content as he explores "The Great Human Race." www.rolandposka.com
