Art: I AM NOT WHAT I APPEAR TO BE by Artist Virginia Ann Zuelsdorf
This piece is a photograph of my deconstructed photographs. I tore and cut various photos to bits and then constructed a new image.

Back in the days before I even knew Photoshop existed, I did this collage with parts of various photographs. My face appears atop my then-boyfriend's body. It appears as if his/her hands are holding a pumpkin. The tape is visible and it is all surrounded by my favorite jacket.

I then photographed this little still life of photos that I put together. What does it mean? Jumbled thoughts of jealousy and narcissism, kinky things and giant pumpkins and my all-time favorite jacket making it all safe. These things are subconsciously or consciously in the piece. Taken together, it is really a self-portrait.
