Woman with a purpose

I'm enjoying a dialogue with pieces of paintings. It is reminiscent of time spent with the paper dolls I used to play with, on the steps of my grandmother's farmhouse on rainy summer days.
The broom is a shredded Florida coastal map, the bandana is a map from the farm up north, and the paint splattered shoes were once Yvette Gellatly's. The work reminds me and is inspired by the Paris born Venezuelan artist Marisol, who works in New York and achieved fame in the 1960s. Her humor and insightful sensitivity continue to appeal to me...
