Artist Statement for Profile Series

In the 1970s when an androgynous facial profile (starting below the eyes) became my passion, I would see this profile everywhere: in contours of trees, clouds, buildings, landscapes and beyond.

In my art, I could not stop creating this profile in every media, on every surface imaginable, with every art tool available to me.

These myriad experiments formed different categories for my SERIES called Profiles which you can see here.

What prompted this investigation? Why below the eyes? Did I not want to be seen? My struggle at this time (I was in my late 20s) was with my sexuality and my womanhood.
