My Turn!

My Turn! was titled in reference to the Main Ingredient song “Everybody Plays the Fool.” A large and time intensive self portrait, My Turn!, was painted at a time in Babiak’s life where she felt that she was causing the majority of her own problems. A simple premise, the creation of My Turn!, was a deeply self-reflective and intimate process for Babiak. This painting is a prime example of why she enjoys self-portraiture, aesthetically, as means of self-expression, and for personal benefit.
