Anti-portrait series

The anti-portrait, broadly conceived as a portrait that resists or disrupts the received art-historical conventions of its genre.

Some anti-portraits retain a partial investment in figuration; others opt for a conceptual or object-based representation of their subject, evoking the sitter not through physiognomic likeness but through strategies that might include verbal or written inscription; the use of indexical or bodily traces, biodata or digital profiling; and many other forms of symbolic or metaphorical elicitation besides.
