Well known for the uncompromising feminist tone of her early work, Joan Semmel has turned her attention over the past decade to the process of image making. Photography has played a central role in Semmel's work since she decided to represent the figure in the early 1970s. However, Semmel's use of photography has often escaped the viewer whose attention focuses on the depicted image. In 2005, Semmel began to afford the viewer a glimpse into her method by aiming the camera towards a mirror, thus capturing the artist in the process of composing the image. Lately, using the camera and mirrors, Semmel has created a haunting series of self-portraits that evoke the passage of time. Organized by Antonio Sergio Bessa.
