Weep and Wonder

Paintings from the Cameo series by Jennifer Nehrbass.

These images are sharply psychological, none of them providing a safe or comfortable arena. They take the myths of femininity and turn them inside out. The imaginative construct in which her work exists goes beyond realism. The point of these carefully contrived painting is to demonstrate the forces and situations that define women.
- Suzanne Sbarge
