Gemma

Portraits

My friend Gemma has been working on a long term performance art/poetry/music project involving Jean-Michel Basquiat. Her stunning performance a few years ago about him still sends chills down my spine. This summer Gemma came over from the UK for another brief residency and we went to Basquiat’s studio to do a few portraits. It was quite a stunning experience to witness her actually in his space for the first time.
