Julie Heffernan: Self-Portraits




Drawing from twentieth-century notions of the self, which theorize that identity is always in flux, Julie Heffernan suggests that the identity of each person is constructed–a reflection of history, biology, culture, and personal experience. In her lavish, fantastical, and exquisitely detailed "self-portrait" paintings, seemingly disparate elements such as historical scenes, references to Western painting, posed figures, mounds of fruit, animals, and lush landscapes all work together to reveal what Heffernan calls her "numerous and contradictory psychic realities."
