Paintbrush Portraits by Rebecca Szeto

"These works are an homage to an often lost sensibility and quality, not simply the modernist stylings, found in Old Masters' works. They (con)fuse realities between politics (labor with leisure) and consumerism (trash and treasure), pointing to an endless loop of transformative regeneration. The brush and its action is also ripe for wordplay: Women's work and their brush off from prior annals of art history as well as material puns about bristling at waste and patriarchy" says the San Francisco-based artist Rebecca Szeto, referring to her ongoing series of Paintbrush Portraits.
