"Labels"

Pat Courtney

I drafted this self-portrait on my Macintosh. The printing was accomplished on my Imagewriter II directly onto the fabric, which is 100% cotton. I feel that in order to do a self-portrait, I must know who I am. After much thought, I decided that I could not answer that question. I made the face on my Pfaff using machine lace techniques. I had many more labels, but there wasn't room, maybe I should have put them  on the back. Finally I selected what I felt were the most relevant labels. So, in closing, I am saying that I am made up of labels, which is what I named this piece.
