(Series: purses and their secrets)

I’m compelled by the details of unspoken
glamour & simplicity to compose,
with the fabrics of color and texture,
the intimate details of being a woman-the enchantment,

Interwoven in daily events
these objects are witnesses of their femininity,
carriers of their rites, the stories, the fables, the conversations-
the delicate pleasure of being a woman.

I am surround myself with whispers,
with hints,
with an unending puzzle of discovering
how they are… women.

Invitational portrait art exhibit

The invention of cameras, smart phones and other apparatus has become the number one way for people to capture faces, gestures, and images of races, genders, characters, common people and personalities.

However in many cases a preference for others has been a different medium, oils, acrylics, mixed media or stone and bronze. These applications and formulas are the source for a huge amount of interpretations and translations of the human face. Layers of time and stories take place on papers, fabrics, metals….  An amalgam of “realism;” or the characterization of social elements and customs.
