"In these new paintings by Selina Foote, abstracted shapes, compositions and palettes are extracted from reproductions of historic portrait paintings. The titles of each painting acknowledge this process, referencing the portraits on which they are based. The works identify themselves as objects as well as pictures. Often painted on translucent silk, the physical components of the painting are revealed through the painted  surface. Combined with the palette and geometeries gleaned from the portrait paintings, these material concerns provide a series of rules and structures, giving way to a new image."
