2001, 70 x 50 cm, Acrylic on canvas
Former client of Antonino, a beautician who offers free evening-classes to young women wishing to learn the trade. Not only did she repaint her entire building in the painting's colors, she speaks to her alter-ego every day.
Here, we find a recurring feature of Antonino's portraits: the clear, unwavering stare, the questioning eyes that always refer the viewer back to themself: "What about you?" Another interesting feature is the model's stance, her leaning slightly to our right adds a touch of urgent tension to the painting.
