This self-portrait combines an evening view through the window revealing the interior of Pedigo’s studio with the surface reflection of the outside world. She says: ’Painting on top of an existing interior, as I worked, moments of the original work visually merged with the new image. The final self-portrait is the accumulation of multiple evenings in the studio over three months.’
