This portrait of the feminist artist Kiki Smith comes from a series of artist portraits photographer Lina Bertucci began creating in the early nineties. Bertucci shoots Smith sitting in her studio, surrounded by the plaster casts of the abject-looking mannequins that would make her famous. With her wild hair, workman's boots, and stained overalls, Smith embodies the romantic idea of the working artist. Bertucci also photographed John Currin, Gabriel Orozco, Elizabeth Peyton, Charles Ray, Rudolph Stingel, and countless others. "Almost two decades later," Bertucci says, "these portraits of artists early in their careers reflect as a kind of microcosm of the pulse of the time."

Lina Bertucci is a visual artist working in photography, video, and film known for her provocative portraits that investigate identity and sexual politics. Bertucci's iconic artist portraits from the early nineties captured art stars like Kiki Smith, Jeff Koons, Maurizio Cattelan, Mathew Barney, and Elizabeth Peyton in their youth. For her Women in the Tattoo Subculture series, Bertucci traveled to tattoo conventions across America, portraying women of different ages and walks of life who use their bodies as canvases for self-expression. While Bertucci's subjects assume the statuesque poses of classical portraiture, her portraits celebrate alternative ideals of beauty. Bertucci is represented by the Perry Rubenstein Gallery in New York, Rhona Hoffman Gallery in Chicago, and Eleni Koroneau Galley in Athens. She is collected widely in the United States and Europe.
