'Women's Identity IV' by Mwamba Chikwemba is a wonderful self-portrait. The artist focuses on subjects of femininity, authenticity, identity, and richness of black culture. Her models are often friends and relatives and noticing details of their behavior, style, and look, the artist enters a conversation about personal vs. collective, original vs. foreign, and authentic vs. standardized.

'This work is a self-portrait. I want you to see here a woman who is determined, naturally and socially focused on her goals. The one who has professional confidence that nothing can ever prevent her from creating art, not even marriage, unlike these other women.' - M. Chikwemba
