Rena Littleson, in her series of self-portraits, explores the loss of identity it through self-censorship and commodification.
Littleson has lately grappled to understand human nature and unfulfilled urges, further distorted by dictates of conscience and institution. ‘A battle is played out between who we think we are, who we would like to be, and who we think others want us to be,’ she says.
Her work has been exhibited across the East Coast and she was the recipient of a 2010 Camberwell Rotary Art Show prize.
