Woodblock, silk screen, chine colle & collage 22" x 30"


Murphy Brown (part of 3) was the center piece of a triptych including Aphrodite and the
Virgin Mary. Each woman was a symbol of her time, the feminine ideal, if you
will.  Behind each is the silk screened text  consisting of the feminine
ideals from medieval times: chastity, compassion, poverty, truth, purity,
obedience, prudence,  praise and patience.  Added to Murphy were some
current attributes such as: assertive, competitive, assured, competent -
traits in contradiction of those from earlier times. The rose represented
womanhood and evolved to the apple (for Eve) and the heart (for Aphrodite)
and NO housework forever was the last word.
