Untitled

2007
Oil on canvas

101.5 x 76 cm

Dora Marr was a surrealist photographer who was Picasso’s lover for ten years. Untitled is inspired by a photograph Marr took of Picasso. Amini renders this scene as a multitude of undulating lines, their endless repetition and skewed perspective reverberate an uneasy power. In her painting Amini has transformed Picasso’s body to that of a woman to further add to the sense of ambiguity.
