“Por­traits serve the dual func­tion of iden­ti­fy­ing in­di­vid­u­als and con­vey­ing po­lit­i­cal power. My ques­tion is: if we weaken th­ese func­tions by ob­scur­ing the pic­ture’s his­tor­i­cal mark­ers and the sub­ject’s gen­der traits, what hap­pens to a por­trait? That’s what drew me to cre­at­ing this se­ries of works.”
