Abstract: This thesis explores my final series of paintings. In the writing, I consider unfulfilled wanting channeled through the surrogate, female self-portrait. Here, I assert the power of yearning as related to female desire (and subsequent agency) and ultimately unpack my relationship to the contemporary as a figurative, female painter.
