Self-Portaits Praying With Masks and Gloves

Jane Zweibel. Self-Portaits Praying With Masks and Gloves, 2008.

This painting is from my "Prayer Project" series. It depicts a group of self-portraits in attitudes of prayer. This configuration of women are adorned with masks and gloves. The imagery and narrative suggests ritual and deals with issues of health, illness and mortality.
