On display at the Artport Gallery from June 14 - August 4, 2014
From ancient times to the present, artists have sought to explore humanity through portraiture. Masterpieces like da Vinci’s ubiquitous Mona Lisa, Sargent’s controversial Madam X, and Warhol’s multiple Marilyns are just a few examples of portraits that have weathered the ages and whose stories are still analyzed today.
Mother-daughter duo, Maria Balingit and Ananda Balingit-LeFils, also have a fascination with portraits and the stories they tell. Through their own unique perspectives, they each seek to capture physical features and reveal the essence of their models through a variety of mediums.
