Women Who Sit
AROHO’s 2013 Artist in Residence, Karina Puente, drew the portrait of 15 writers on one page. With the help of videographer, Rebecca Scheckman, the artist compiled video footage of the drawing process resulting in a stop-motion animation of women’s faces morphing in and out of each other. Over a three day period, fifteen writers sat for the artist at different times and experienced a similar theme: each woman is filled with stories and when truly seen, each writer can tell her tale.
The drawings dissolved -like memories- into one final image. One Woman. With stories revealed.
