Overview Pillow Portraits - oil on canvas - 760 x 215 cm
LS is painting self-portraits for more than 20 years.
Her paintings refine and distill the immediacy of candid photography to create formally dynamic compositions at the same time that they expose self-revelation to be another form of camouflage.
They are a marvelous balancing act between abstraction and figuration, between rationality and feeling, and between existence and perception.
Through the years she worked on different series, most of them are ongoing.
