"Portraits" brings together sixteen artists from the Southeast Asian region working on the theme of portraiture. The portrait, being synonymous with the face, is by expectation to deliver likeness of the sitter. Being the most conventional of genres, its longevity and diversity can be attributed to the enduring challenge of and fascination with the depiction of the self. In its long tradition, it has transcended several purposes and meanings and transgressed its traditional boundaries and definitions as the meaning of the portrait stretches and bends into diverse artistic and intellectual territory. Susie Wong and Geraldine Javier create an emotional distance between the subject and the viewer. Susie Wong paints her mother as "Woman Leaning Against Table", using the table as a barrier. VWFA's "Portraits" will be open to the public from 12th February - 6th March 2004 at Valentine Willie Fine Art, 1st Floor No. 17, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur 59100.
