This work belongs to a series of medium- to large-scale portraits of androgynous figures and explores questions of identity and gender through the study of traditional portraiture in painting.
This black figure is a homage to “Mitochondrial Eve“, a crucial archeological finding. She is humanity’s oldest traceable ancestor, a black woman, the true Eve, the mother of us all.
