Over the course of 3 months In 2010, Marina Abramovic staged "The Artist Is Present" at MoMA in NYC- the most widely attended performance art piece in history. She sat in a chair for three months, six days a week, and people lined up to sit in front of her and look into her eyes for as long as they liked. Marco Anelli took photos of each of the participants, and the result was his book Portraits in the Presence of Marina Abramovic.
In 2015, participating in "The 100 Day Project", I decided to paint 100 faces from Marco Anelli's book- a painting a day for three months. I made a book of these paintings in the fall of 2016, which was produced by BookArt in Montréal.
