    About The Work

    Anh Duong is best known for her self-portraits in which the artist depicts herself in non-idealized situations, wide-eyed and raw. The relentless self-examination exposes the artist's own emotions and vulnerability. Of portraiture, Duong has said "In my opinion a portrait is more than a mere fixation of the memory. I consider it as a dialectical game with the mirror image, which I analyze and deal with in a pictorial manner. Every work of an artist is a self-portrait. I am just more conscious of that process than most." Overworked by Dreams, the second in a series of 2012 Artspace commissions with leading contemporary artists, is a beautiful, layered work that reflects the artist's inner life.
