SELFIES abound the social network. I think there is something immediate about them. I will come back to this line now-now.It is not as if the *selfie is a yesterday phenomenon. Think about the self portraits that adorns our galleries from the ages of yore yonder. In those days the artist, having contemplated himself, set out to capture his likeness as honesty as possible to capture his essence so that those who will give the priceless work attention and say ‘oh that is a Gerard Sekoto’ oh this is a Maggie Laubser will be titillated by the aura and mystery guess game of what the sitter, artist was preoccupied with when the work was spun.
