Faceless Portraits, Ewa Juszkiewicz

The vintage women of Ewa Juszkiewicz‘s hypnotizing portraits have experienced a decapitation of an unusual sort: their heads are all replaced by a series of inanimate object from plants to mollusks.

“In my paintings I take critical view on the way women have been pictured in history of painting and other visual media up to today,” Juszkiewicz explains in her artist’s statement. “I work mostly in the field of portrait, which I intend to approach from a different angle that avoids focusing on the appearance.”
