Citizens

Untitled oil on canvas 55 x 38 cm 2021

Citizens is an ongoing series of paintings of portrait photographs taken between 1930 and 1990 in Europe These tiny prints, found in boxes under tables in flea markets and usually anonymous, would have been used as keepsakes as well as for identification papers, passes and passports. They testify to the labyrinthine requirements of citizenship during a century of global political tension.
