My work considers how portrait and figural paintings have served for centuries as key sites for negotiating issues of identity. In part my interest is historical: I study the pictorial, technical, and narrative conventions of Western art to explore the ways in which primarily male artists have imagined the body. Taking up this tradition, I investigate and reshape these conventions, developing routes into the past that encourage contemporary debate and reevaluation.
