On Saturday, Fatima Abu Rumi, one of the four artists featured in the currrent exhibit, came to the gallery to touch up one of her paintings, of a scarf. Her paintings deal with issues of identity. Many are self portraits, depicting herself in traditional attire with headscarf, without, and more fully veiled. I asked her if she would pose for me between a couple of her pieces, a self portrait, and a portrait of her father as a saint.
Notice the Hello Kitty t-shirt!
Just another facet of her identity.
