“She was beautiful; there is no denying that. And her looks captured the zeitgeist of her day: strong but feminine, pale but with lively rosey skin. For the next near-decade, Audrey posed for a litany of different works of art. Her face was slathered onto canvas, woven into tapestries, and chiseled out of stone.”

Audrey Munson, “Miss Manhattan”

"I Am Who They Were" necklace by Ashley Gilreath, 2011. From the artist’s site:

This necklace was made to represent the memory of my grandparent’s long staircase in their house. I want the viewer to see my history as the necklace wraps around, and to feel the sensation of climbing up and down the stairs as the images of my family line the walls. More importantly, I wanted my skin to show through as my family’s skin, so that my stories, my life and who I am as an individual is shown as the sum of all of the people that came before me.

I casted dollhouse frames from sterling silver and bronze, and printed my family directly onto the glass. I created a box clasp mechanism to support the weight of my loved ones.

Fluttering wings leave lacy trails as moths beat their way to a floodlight on a rural Ontario lawn. The midsummer night’s exposure, held for 20 seconds, captured some of the hundreds of insects engaged in a nocturnal swarm.
