2019 - Ongoing
This series is about invisibility, aging, self worth, role-play and identity. I am searching for portraits that I saw as a child—pictures that are in my memory bank.
I am specifically interested in American and English paintings from the period between the mid 19th and mid 20th century, an important time in the evolution of painting that coincides not only with the birth of photography but with the advent of women emerging as artists in their own right.
Each of the photographs in this series takes as a starting point a portrait painting but, more importantly, the images take inspiration from the layered and often complex experience of women depicted in portraits.
