Episode 7: Jenny Dubnau

June 6, 2017

Jenny Dubnau is a painter of portraits. Her uncanny, highly detailed oil paintings are made from the careful study of photographs she takes herself. Kate and Clarity visit the artist in her Long Island City studio, and discuss contemporary vs. historic meanings of portraiture, Barthes' idea of the punctum, and how Dubnau taught herself to paint from photographs of cadavers found in the Yale Medical School library.
