An Introduction to Narcissism

Narcissists always say it’s everybody else’s fault. I think they’re probably right. I very much like this painting by David Revoy whose website and work I just discovered. Do take a look. He explains the painting and his own take on the Narcissus myth as follows:

“So, I made a modern view of it, adapting some points and working more on describing the psychology of characters : – Narcissus is here a traveler, he observe with passion his reflect on the metro’s glass. A beautiful boy, mysterious. – Echo is one of those thousand girls with magazine/headphones from everyday that is suddenly interested by him, but didn’t know how to approach him. So, 2 world in confrontation, this kind of situation is may be not as dramatic as the original myth but I just wanted to put the same perfume in it and keep the relation. Myth are still alive for me, and are played every days. This picture was realised for 3D station contest “greek mythology”, and received the first prize award. Thanks to them.”
