Single Ladies is a show of miniature paintings by Courtney Cerruti. Courtney took a departure from painting life size oil portraits to explore working with watercolor and gouache on a small scale. The intimate nature of the work is designed to draw the viewer in and spend time with each face, imagining what each woman's story might be, creating a unique narrative. Easily overlooked, these "single" ladies exist in isolation, but are grouped together for the duration of the show, creating a temporary community and a shared identity.
