Joan Semmel

Semmel, a pioneer of feminist art in the 1970s, presents recent self-portraits that recast the traditional role of the nude in figurative painting. Semmel serves as both the artist and subject, superimposing her own unclothed image in multiple layers that dissolve the distinction between figure and background while still maintaining a level gaze with the viewer.
