Title: A Man/A Woman 2
Size: 65" x 80"
Weinblatt received her BA in Drawing and Printmaking from Queens College, Flushing, New York and her MFA in Painting from the School of Visual Arts, New York. In her current series of paintings, A Man / A Woman, she uses the vocabulary of daily life and historical reference to inform the content, melding the purity of classical figuration with contemporary content. These arrangements include various conventions of modernism's pictorial language-- discontinuity of scale, surface, and space. Balanced real and abstract elements coexist to create images which allude to the myths of womanhood. Evocative motifs, activated by current issues and concerns of women, challenge the uneasy boundaries of possession, substance, perception, and hallucination.
