Self Portrait With Two Failed Projects I - Limited Edition
Self Portrait With Two Failed Projects I has a limited edition print run of 120 across 5 sizes, created by Nina Rodin.
Each giclée print comes unframed with a white border, printed with archival inks, with a digitally signed label by the artist. The print captures details, textures and colours of the original artwork and is printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm paper.
In her series, Self-Portraits With Failed Projects, Rodin uses the classic format of the painted self-portrait where, traditionally, young men gaze at themselves very seriously in a mirror while holding a brush in front of their easel. Here the painter is only symbolically evident in the laborious application of paint to canvas and the artist herself is entirely obliterated by her own –failed–work. She adopts the attitude of the geisha, a subtle but often misunderstood figure, whose art and aesthetic only was for sale but whose real power sometimes was more political through the encounters and conversations she orchestrated.
In addition to the work available through H&E, this artist has an extensive portfolio available on request. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy.
