"Who Is She?"

Marni Goldshlag

This portrait presented itself to me one day as a sketch which, within three days, was a complete quilt. I don't really believe it "looks" like me, but it most definitely "feels" like me, at least some of the time. I often feel the contradictions and dualities that this quilt portrait expresses within my own life. The left brain/right brain struggle, the sadness/happiness dichotomy, as expressed by the mouth which is both downturned and upturned, the wife versus mother, teacher versus artist, mask versus true visage, etc. I believe this is just one of many portraits I might have made and I have vauge intentions of trying to put together some of the others which periodically make themselves known.
