All Present Or Accounted For

Beverly Owens

Using her signature photo encaustic style, Owens continues to explore portraiture with a playful use of posing and posturing. Her work questions one’s identity and presence within a group or specific location. These hybrid analogue/digital artworks explore tensions between gender, sexuality, and race. The figures in the images are surrounded by an undefined space, asking: Can we really know our whereabouts, our standing within a group?
