I think you're doing an excellent job of portraying the people behind the people. I can see in these portraits the modern day person, but can also believe they are the role they are playing, while at the same time see how they personally relate to that role.
Does that make sense?
Yes, I understand. It is impossible to render a representational work for someone born in the 1700's. My work in this series reflects the real people, "the actors", that are presented in my series. You caught on to what really intrigued me the most when I started out with this series. Thank you for your comments on the work! :-) Best regards, Oksana
