What Makes You You? The answers act as an inspiration for the artist Sally Sheinman to do a unique ipad image – a new kind of portraiture.

Thank you Sally for asking the question as to what it is that constitutes being me … being me is an ever evolving process and therefore a state of being with ever amorphous edges of all kinds … and yet , I can definitively state as I am in the present and also look back over my life, that the most important variable to me , in the equation that is me (to date) , is that I paint… I say that painting is my first language and English is my second … I have been painting seriously since I was eleven years old … I now paint fracturing states of divergent realities caught in the process of coalescing into a greater reality or coalescing to enter over a threshold of transcendence or liminal type space (The word liminal comes from the Latin word limen, meaning threshold – any point or place of entering or beginning.) … It could be said that I try to paint points of epiphany …
