About SELF
            CONSCIOUS:
In this new series of work, ROSEMARY FEIT COVEY explores expressions of sadness, grief and loss. Inherently a  narcissistic and self conscious construct, COVEY challenges the concept of “selfie” to a level of artistic and universal impact. She uses her own face during times of personal internal grief to replicate the emotions she has seen on the faces of others during periods of loss. This body of work is comprised of a combination of painting, photography, and printmaking based on the quick capture of her image.
