In the effort to discover her missing self, she created a series of performance personas, including an evolution into a man that appeared to her to be very much like Anthony Van Dyke's portrait of Charles the First, King of England. This evolved into her "King of Solana Beach (California), also a bearded character she took into the streets to interact with passersbys. Antin also uses the "Ballerina," "Nurse" and "Black Movie Star" as personas in attempts to discover or create a Self.
