Self-Portrait as Midlife Mermaid #7
My "Midlife Mermaids" are self-portraits that combine realistic and fantasy imagery and content. Specifically, this series of work explores and portrays core elements of female identity, both personal and collective. I use each "Midlife Mermaid" as a vehicle for an intensive examination of cogent issues of gender, sexuality, and aging.
