#271 – Winter 2023

A portrait of Bernadette Mayer done in watercolor, charcoal, and collage. The portrait is a riff on an iconic photo of a young Mayer from her Memory series. This piece features Mayer in grayscale, against a background of red and yellow wash, in which is incorporated collaged images of a rotary telephone and a house with its lights on in the night.
