Painting is a space in which male artists can practice voyeurism in a respectable manner, this is true for photographers as well. This has been made possible as the female model whose nudity in an artist’s studio is situated in the context of art history. In my paintings, I am throwing a critical eye at my own self as an artist and my relationship to the female model in front of me, who is ready to undress and model for me due to her poverty.
