Looking at self-portraits of past women artists, such as the Rococo painter Adélaïde Labille-Guiard painting herself wearing elegant attire. I wanted to re-represent the idea of what it meant to be a woman artist. At a time when it wasn’t generally accepted. My metal holder for a self-portrait is embellished with feminine motifs to represent this history.
