Elisabeth Condon photo blogs a visit to the studio of painter Jenny Dubnau.

Condon writes that "[Dubnau's] portraits combine the best of Chardin and David (someone she thinks about often), with photographs staged by Jenny in the studio. The combination of air-borne facture and photographic portraiture yields strange perceptual resonance, slowing the rapid scan of visual data to a fleshy crawl."
