Marta Spurgeon or “As I See Myself”

I felt I was missing something when I came out of the San Francisco Fine Art Fair. I found some little drawings I liked. I said hello to a sculpture by Manuel Neri  but that was about it.  Walking back to the car we decided to check out the MFA Graduate Exhibition. That building was full of energy. This self portrait, taken with my iphone, is of Marta Spurgeon’s hanging plastic boxes. They remind me of Ct , CAT scans of the brain or three-dimensional images  of the inside of the head from a series of two-dimensional x-ray images. Marta has layers of transparent  plastic sheets hanging in space. Each sheet has part of a face painted on it – altogether they make up a whole three dimensional face.
