|The Unlikeness - Drypoint on cushioned vinyl - Steph Chalmers - 2009|
I made this work after I saw the Rita Angus exhibition at Te Papa. I had never felt compelled to do a self-portrait but seeing the variety of ways Rita represented herself made me want to complete at least one. I think I got it out of my system.
This work was selected for the National Painting and Printmaking Award 2009.
