“When I’m writing a poem or drawing, I’m not a female; I’m an artist.” ―Patti Smith

Picture Poetry by P Leduc & C E Sum

Art scholars look for Leonardo da Vinci’s codpiece in every figure he portrayed, from Vitruvian Man to Mona Lisa.

If Adam limned a likeness of Eve, or vice versa, whose fig leaf might an art scholar find?

“To sit for one’s portrait is like being present at one’s own creation.”

―Alexander Smith

In Yang’s image of Yin or Yin’s of Yang, whose selfie?

“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.”

―Oscar Wilde

An art scholar who views a self-portrait in a looking glass, may find the artist’s better half.

 Love is born into every human being: it calls back the halves of our original nature together;

it tries to make one out of two and heal the wound of human nature.”
