"Portrayal – from the Latin verb protrahere, to draw forward (pro- forward + trahere- to draw)

To make a portrait is to engage in a close and risky relationship with the subject. The process, bringing forward knowledge, can collapse social norms of comfortable distance. The portrayal of a living subject allows for limitless surprise and for the unknown to appear even in a beloved face and form.

The artists participating in “Portayal” have captured a connection between artist and subject. This relation is real, but cannot be pinned on likeness or mood. It is the opposite of anonymity. Arising from the complexity of a two-way encounter, the work does not partake of narrative or easily identified emotion.

Empathy, frailties and strengths, and individuality are made concrete by these portraits. But the telling mark or method of this accomplishment cannot be ascertained. Mysterious as the intimate can be, these portraits are an antidote to our daily bath in data, information without intelligence. They draw forth questions."  - Marianne Gagnier June 2010
