Self Portrait with Candy Button Dress
Self Portrait with Candy Button Dress
Papier-mâché, wire, candy buttons
15" x 6" x 3"
2006

In Self Portrait in a Candy Dress, the figure wears a dress made from drops of colored sugar on paper. Exposed and alone, protected only by her candy button armor, she separates from the viewer with a disinterested expression. Like the babies in Me x 3, there is an unsettling tension created by the mature face on the child-like, dollish form.
