About II

Ana Teles is currently undertaking a practice-based PhD at Chelsea College of Arts, London.

Her project involves copying the work of other artists as a strategy to initiate a dialogue that considers how artists accept the copy in their practice and expose their relationship to concepts of artistic identity and authenticity.

Teles selected four artists as her subjects to copy – Andrew Bick, Frank Bowling, and two female artists who rejected her proposal – all of whom have varied painting and drawing backgrounds and are at different stages in their careers, bringing contextual elements into play surrounding identity, gender and power.
