In each of these drawings
Donis places women in his life
who are performance artists, photographers,
painters, curators, docents, students, and even his own mother
to stand at the center of a vast expanse of white space.
Each woman is alone or paired with herself,
in contemporary dress (or undress) and attitude,
in a pose from the world of painting or sculpture
by the likes of Titian, Raphael, Donatello, Velasquez,
and Goya among others.
