love it

I LOVE THIS I WISH I COULD PUT IT AS MY PROFILE PIC. ON ONE OF MY CONNETIONS TO WHERE I CAN MEET WITH FRIENDS!!!

To Mr Anthony Palmer, would like to know a reference to your "done to death" comment. I have not seen this representation before.
The message of how media effects a womens' self esteem is a worthwhile message that needs to be addressed.

Wow. These images are really good stuff. Arresting. And yet embodying some fair amount of subtlety at the same time. Smart and sexy. Hmm...kinda the perfect woman!

I'd think it quite a challenge to work in that large a format, such as 4'x5'.

For those who aren't all that impressed, I'd like to see them create something NEARLY as good.

Jane, thanks for this.

Reminds me of the pop movement. Also Tony Berlants stuff. He would find metal signs, cut them up & nail the pieces onto wooden geometric forms. Hope to see more of you...Ben

I do like it. its just, you cannot see the artist's concept. Then again, the only perspective that matters is the artists. Its very creative though, and well done.

This is really good art. Quite unique and a good point of conversation.
Very talented. Well done

i love this pic

this has been done to death the only thing new bout it is the materials its made of unless it was made with old materials. if a person is going to stand upon imagery that has been done to death by nearly every art student in the country and claim it as their own the least they could do is push the envelope harder elevate the subject matter to a more universal plain so that it does something to everyone. besides bore them or give them an idea for a clients entrance way at a cliche type restaurant. this type of work is barely more than art deco or folk art. it is very well executed which given the artist's background it should. if she were one of my students i would have given her an A. but not let her settle for this type of contrived imagery
