British Art History professor Shearer West suggests that ‘likeness’ is an unstable idea, dependent on shifting socio-political and cultural conditions. She contends that portraiture as an artistic practice has always existed on a continuum between the specificity of likeness and the generality of type. Using West’s theory as a framework, Fred Stonehouse will discuss “imaginary” portraits in Mirror Image, including two of his works from the late 1980s.
Fred Stonehouse is an artist and professor in the UW-Madison Art Department where he teaches advanced drawing and painting.
