    In Suzanne Vincent’s recent exhibition, meticulous detail lends her familiar portraits and still lifes an eerie sense of metaphysical hyperreality. In a self-portrait, displayed in an antique-looking frame, entitled The Legend of St. Lucy I Can do it with my eyes Shut, 1990, Vincent portrays herself in a meditative pose, with hair cropped short in a monklike manner. As legend has it, St. Lucy plucked out her eyes in an act of martyrdom and she is often represented offering them in a dish. Here a heart-shaped amulet around the artist’s neck contains her open eye.
