6 Versions of Elige

   In 1998 I was comissioned by Mary Kay cosmetics to create an artwork based on their new scent called Elige. I photographed the scent by pointing my camera at the spot just above the opened bottle and recording the scent visually....... this is what it looked like..

  I had been making Needlepoint versions of these photos of scent and music for a couple of years...

   In 2001 I was asked to be in a show called "Tipping point" curated by Lauren Ross at White Columns and I decided to make some other versions of this photo in different media.....
