'Women's Identity VIII' by Mwamba Chikwemba elegant portrait of a black woman wearing a traditional African headwrap. 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.

'The painting explores how this woman in my neighborhood looks with a head-wrap. She has never gotten any complaints about wearing a head-wrap from her husband. She believes you can still look sexy wearing it.' - M. Chikwemba
