Self-Portrait as Mermaid With Daryl Hannah

Jane Zweibel. Self-Portrait as Mermaid With Daryl Hannah's Hair (Splash), 2008.

This piece is from my body of work, "A Cut Above the Rest: A Salon of Self-portraits and Styles". This series of stuffed paintings was created for a site-specific installation. Self-portraits are combined with famous, iconic hairstyles, which are culled from a range of sources: pop figures, history, mythology, and fairy tales.
