Who’s your Mommy?: Almásy Ottilia at APA

Almásy Ottilia Rita’s BLACKRED (FEKETEVÖRÖS) is a series of self portraits of the ultra hip Almásy in multiple poses with a variety of props.  Following in the footsteps of Rembrandt, Egon Schiele, Frida Kahlo, and Nikki Lee, Almásy confronts the viewer with herself.  Her charged self portraits present the viewer with a figure who is brutal, dangerous, coy, and even compassionate.  Her works include  a lighter, a baby, and animals which seem to serve the purpose of familiars as she challenges and vexes the viewer with an added symbolic layer of meaning to an already intense interaction.
