Despues de Rossetti

Dante Gabriel Rossetti came into my consciousness when I visited the Island of Puerto Rico and found his painting, all the way from England, sitting amongst a treasure of other artworks in the city of Ponce. The Caribbean people had adopted Rossetti’s work as the women in his images seemed so romanticized that their sexual ferocity and shining beauty would easily be mistaken for Latina aesthetics. In my series Despues de Rossetti I look at how the women in his pieces are often rather mannish in the size and seem to embody a masculinity as well as a femininity in their gaze and strong bodies. So I am replicating poses from his paintings and replacing his overtly feminine ladies with male / genderless figures in a romantic pose.
