In the Studio with Notman
Montreal artist Marisa Portolese is exhibiting a series of portraits inspired by her research into the Notman collection. For a number of years, Portolese has been making portraits of women from a feminist perspective. As a participant in the artist-in-residence program, she has sought to explore the studio tradition and its decors, paying particular attention to the backdrops and accessories used by Notman in photographing female subjects.
The exhibition is composed of large-format colour photographs taken in natural light with an analog camera.
