This latest series â??Femmes Dâ??Interieurâ??,Usdin reflects upon the representation of women as a decorative element, morphing objects like common household items, furniture, and even the countryside with that of women painted in the style of portraits from the Classical Era. This offbeat reinterpretation of â??woman-as-objectâ?? is at one time unsettling and yet Usdin has the ability to convey this strong subject matter with wit and charm in her stunning artworks. It is has been said of Usdinâ??s work, â??it is always about women â?? the women of fairytales, of mythology, and of fantasy,â?? and she provides that same ideology in this series.
