Everyone knows the bemused face of the Mona Lisa and the comely gaze of Marilyn Munroe, but they are really just the visual representations of people that artists used as their models. For Musings, Lina Tesoriero has created a pastiche of the muse as a human image interpreted by artists throughout the ages. In this body of work, familiar images are subverted and we are left amused but also curious to question the conventional idea of the model or Muse in art. Lina’s practice is often experimental and process-driven and she expresses her ideas with mixed media. These artworks on paper are made with a variety of painting and drawing materials combined with collage. Although she has participated in many group exhibitions, this is Lina’s first solo show.
