Suitcase & Co. Part One was painted during the pandemic lockdown (March through May 2020) in watercolor on paper with one live subject. Prudence Whittlesey is continuing this series in oil on canvas for Suitcase & Co. Part Two.
Over 100 scholars of philosophy and neuroscience have participated as sitters for the watercolor and oil painting project titled Philosophy ReBound. Prudence Whittlesey developed a rigorous painting protocol that requires a focused active engagement from each sitter. This project is supported by a 2020 Pollock-Krasner artist grant.
The oil painting series titled You Might Just Be Right was made between 2016-2017 and will continue with the same studio model in 2020. The language of these "portrait" paintings occurred spontaneously from the interactions in the studio between Prudence Whittlesey and her studio model.
