Better is the Ready, 2010, by Irene Hardwicke Olivieri 
Oil on wooden door, 188 x 78.7 cm (74 x 31 in.)

Among the recurring themes in American artist Irene Hardwicke Olivieri’s enchanting, idiosyncratic, and curiously complex artworks, are self-portraits in which the artist is physically and emotionally exposed. She frequently incorporates art supplies—“symbols of hope, anticipation, and eagerness”—into her autobiographical paintings. When telling the story behind her larger-than-life work Better is the Ready, Olivieri relates how she thinks of the artist “like a soldier or scout, wearing badges of past experiences, triumphs, and challenges.” Neither humans nor animals are simple portraits under Olivieri’s brush; her works explore the wildness within and without.
