Artwork / 2004 / Sara Nasrudin

painted portrait of a woman wearing a false beard
Gwenn Seemel
Sara Nasrudin
acrylic on canvas with buttons, velcro, and tread
20 x 16 inches

Sara’s portrait is unique in the Trickster Project and in my portfolio as a whole. The beard is actually a second piece of canvas attached by velcro and thread to the painting. Sara was playing the male trickster Nasrudin: I thought it fitting to represent her fake beard in three dimensions. My work later permanently joined the third dimension with this painting.
