A Glimpse - self portrait

A Glimpse - self portrait

2011
I am a member of a group of seven artists who have been meeting monthly over the past two years sharing ideas and experimenting with new materials.  In 2011 we exhibited under the banner 'Text' art.
This piece is titled, 'A glimpse - self portrait.'  Inspired by Shalom Aleichem's autobiography "Funem Yid" (1915), which was written in the third person, the 'writer' Sholem Aleichem telling about the 'person' Sholem Aleichem.
For me to do a self portrait comprising only what is visible would do little justice to my persona which so strongly comprises my background and belief systems.
