Notes: "“What unites Deborah Willis’s distinctive projects is a focus on the force of beauty in the history of modernism. She is interested in how beauty is posed, constructed, imagined, reviewed, critiqued, and contested in art, the media, and everyday culture. In each of her pictures or the works of those that she has installed on exhibition walls, we see a meditation on how we live in the shadows of the many negotiations in the marriage of race, beauty, and power. Few understand the history of the nexus of power and beauty and how it operates internationally more than Deborah Willis. Few ever will.” --Sarah Lewis, Harvard University appearing on Shine Portrait Studio website (viewed on December 7, 2018)
