"The photo is them, and the paint is me, and the combination of the two is what creates this sensual and psychotic tension," says artist Austyn Weiner. Where Cindy Sherman explored herself and notions of femininity through a series of costumes and staging, Weiner takes this one step further, using models as vehicles to identify and peel back the facets of her personality while physically removing herself completely from the image.
