"Portrait XII" by Sabine Dehnel
by sabine7 / May 13, 2009

Sabine Dehnel's Portrait series is made up of photographs based on her paintings, but each portrait is certainly interesting enough to stand on its own. Featured is the back of a woman's head, hair done elaborately and embellished with an odd variety of accessories. Yarn is woven through the hair; strange caps cover the scalp; spiders form a sort of lacey mantilla. Traces of paint, often orange or purple, are hinted at on her neck, as though the artist has used her as a canvas. What if the woman were to turn around? What surprises would we see then?
