This thesis considers my journey and accomplishments as an artist through a doctoral program of research. The writing explicates my intentions and observations of making work and showing it and the relation between the two.
The first chapter Witnessing Woman begins with images of men by women. My research led me to the writing of Luce Irigaray and ideas of productive mimesis seen through a filter of the witnessing woman. Elizabeth Peyton’s portraits are considered and links are made between Irigaray and Pipilotti Rist. The nude male is revisited.
