Self-Portrait as Misfit #4
This painting is part of a series titled "Misfits". It is both a self-portrait and a portrait of an Everywoman. She is depicted in the midst of a lush landscape, involved in an epic and everyday struggle: that of trying to "fit" into one's own skin, and a woman's ordinary battle with pantyhose. The narrative is simultaneously humorous and disturbing.
