This exhibition, by local Bendigo artist Alanah Ellen Brand, explores painted portraiture in the age of social media. The exhibition highlights the complex play between the public and private self, reflected across both historical and contemporary portraiture. The exhibition consists of 10 small-scale black and white portrait paintings on board derived from social media selfies that appear on the artists' social media news feed. The exhibition also consists of 5 small-scale recreations of well-known historical portraits admired by the artist. Placed alongside each other these paintings intended to reflect how similar contemporary selfies are to highly refined and constructed historical portraits.
