UAVM - Unknown Artists Virtual Museum
Portraits are one of the basic forms of artistic practice.
With Secret Portraits the UAVM Museum pretends to reveal that ancient form in the digital age. Secret Portraits refers to an unknown identity, a grateful theme to the Unknown Artist. The secrecy as representation is against
individualism of the picture. In this sense the Secret Picture. It's anti-individual. In a sense it's an anti-portrait. With Secret Portraits UAVM seeks to present an digital art show around the Portrait, questioning their ways of Representation,
centered in photograph and digital video and refusing practices associated with it, such as drawing, painting or photograph. Included in the exhibition is Laura Castanedo who has been a Premiere Portfolio Artists at absolutearts.com since 2003.
