Publisher Note

"M/m.A" includes a re-publishing of Julia Dubsky's (2021) essay "M/modesty", alongside a new foreword by Rebecca O'Dwyer, thirty-three works on paper produced between 2020 and 2023, and a new essay. "Actors!!" tracks a series of encounters and anecdotes that led to a sudden personal fascination with various forms of acting, comparing the history of painting to an actor's long career, with Isabelle Huppert featuring as the chief comparator.    

"'M/modesty' is a study of two modesties: one that was dictated as a rule of obligatory decorum for women in England in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and one that was developed as a painterly ideal by a number of male artists (both real and fictive) in France in the same era. A meditation on the possible forms and fronts of hesitancy, delay and indirectness, painter Julia Dubsky's first book is modestly scaled but promiscuous in scope." — extract from Amelia Groom's blurb for the original "M/modesty" publication.
