New York painter Joan Semmel received critical success for her large nude self-portraits in the 1970’s and has been a leader of the feminist movement ever since. Her recent paintings continue to explore the subject of the female nude, using herself as the model, with much of the interest in the subject of painting and the visual experience. Here in Transformation the play of double exposure references not only the use of photography as a source, but also allows for motion. Her unflinching depiction of the aging female, full frontal nude shows the power of her complete confidence and maturity as an artist and woman.
