Leni Kae’s self-portrait, “The Artist Bare: Unfinished, Untold” is a finalist in the Dean Cogle Portrait Prize 2019. The artwork is a 37cm x 45cm acrylic painting on canvas, with canvas and paper collage elements.

The artist says of the artwork:

There is something about motherhood that has forced a self-confrontation. So much changes, it feels like starting over. There is also a mass of paradoxical emotions. There is joy for new life, yet grief for the life that can no longer be lived. There is the rediscovery of the self and your own strength, yet feelings of loss during a period of self-transformation as you say goodbye to your old self. Throughout it all, I felt stripped bare, and like I’m building a new ‘self’ again. In this painting, I have painted myself as bare; unfinished. The loose, stuck on canvas parts represent the untold story to come. Beneath the front layers, I have applied paper over my chest across the canvas, symbolising the small part of me I keep to myself; the part of me that I cannot lose, and the passion that I must guard. ” – Leni Kae

The Dean Cogle Portrait Prize features a $5,000 first prize, and will be on exhibition at Currumbin’s Dust Temple.
