“The Millennial Man” Dean Christensen’s self-portraits embody the complexities behind the ego-driven contemporary fixation on the self. Pairing self-aggrandizing and self-depricating imagery, Christensen offers a critique of the millennial generation, while simultaneously indulging in its trademark narcissism. Obscuring the relationship between vanity and insecurity, Christensen challenges the viewer to question their understanding of the millennial generation. The work portends gravitas with self-inflating, yet arbitrary cultural references and iconography. Christensen’s work presents a careful treatment of oil and acrylic mediums that build on the satire, creating a perfect storm in which to reflect upon image-making- the zeitgeist of our age.
