Project: Rather Handsome, Than Beautiful

Dates: 2020-2021

Description: 

 

Influenced by visual aesthetics from traditional still life painting and  contemporary period drama shows, these paintings are awkward portraits of desire, sentimentality, romanticism and resilience. They explore an untraditional and queer, view of beauty, convention, ceremony, femininity, motherhood, intimacy and self-embodiment.

She was rather handsome than beautiful. Her face was captivating by reason of a certain frankness of expression and contradictory subtle play of features. Her manner was engaging. - Kate Chopin
