Artist Statement:

"Bona Fide Bogus Women in Art"

This new series, an amusing, tongue-in-cheek group of tightly painted Trompe L’oeil (fool the eye in French) paintings, highlights fictitious women artists. The “Bona Fide Bogus Women in Art” is a sequel to my “ A-Z: An Historical Survey of Women Artists.” (Using the fruit of a pear as a metaphor for the lives and work of 26 women, from the 1500’s to present day). Inspiration for this new series came after giving many lectures of the A-Z project, showing each woman’s work. Frustrated that few women artists had ever been heard of by my audiences, I thought: “I could be making these women up!” So I am.

The two paintings in the forthcoming exhibit, "Trompe l'oeil: Masters of Deception", Oct. 17-Nov. 15, 2014 at Meibohm Fine Arts, East Aurora, NY, have an image of the artist (all images of myself-thank you Cindy Sherman) and have the following stories: "No Pulp Friction" Highlights fictitious painter Roberta Tangelo, a still life painter with a mean temper and a bad smoking habit. "Blanca" (AKA "Casa Blanka") Highlights color field minimalist Graciela Bella (fictitious) who had a wicked addition to the fourth deadly sin.

Trompe L’eoil is the most difficult type of painting, watching a trompe painter work, is like watching grass grow, but just to have the experience with master painter John Yerger (American, 1935-), makes it worth the effort.
