I enjoy doing figurative work occasionally, and have always liked to paint or draw portraits. It is a challenge to capture facial expression. I sometimes include portraits in my projects, for example those of Alice Salomon, Wilfrid Israel, and the composers Britten, Korngold, and Ullmann.
Other portraits are of family or people from photographs I see that touch me.
DESSA is well known not only for her projects combining music and visual art, including the creation of « Transoundart » but also for her research concerning artistic expression for collective memory.
