"Passeggiatta" by Hallie Cohen (2023)

The painters of Lascaux saw the writing on the wall, but when were they able to realize the reflection in the pond was them. Similarly,  one may possess mimetic abilities--such as the ability to draw. However, when do these include the inner eye peering out at the painter themselves a la "Las Meninas?" The sensibility of the artist is removed from a Campbell's Soup can until, as with Warhol, the image is proliferated to such an extent that it attains the ubiquitousness and religiosity of a crucifix.

read Mark Segal in The East Hampton Star on Hallie Cohen's "Mi Ricordo"

and listen to "Like a Virgin"by Madonna
