“I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.”

Frida Kahlo

Artists have created self portraits for centuries—in part to ensure presence in their absence.

In My Absence is an exhibition devoted to portraits.

Often portraits convey the impression the artist believes, hopes or fears they leave on those around them.

It may covey something unspoken, or simply be a visual feast for beauty sake. It may hint at something as did the Mona Lisa.

Whether submitting a self portrait or portraying another, uBe Art wants to see something revealed, or atleast a hint at what lies beneath.
