Side by SIDE: Treasure Mapped Portraits

Emma by Isabella, age 10, Texas 

The artist tells us this is Emma, and in the sharing of her name, the paint is readable in so many ways. Layers of attention and a memory meeting the world head on. Beautiful. 

Greenlands by Alexandra Harrison, Melbourne

She said it looks a bit like your sister, or your mother, and I think of the lines in both of those faces, unmet and leaning in worlds away from each other. I think of intersections between edges undoing and careering around headless cross to smallwood. Greenlands. A folk song, a road trip, a way out of there.
