Andrea Mary Marshall is a New York-based artist whose self-portraits meld performance, religious iconography, sexuality, fashion, and fetishism in pieces that explore the Madonna-Whore fiction of female identity. Her latest collection of work, "Toxic Women," will open on December 9th at Allegra LaViola Gallery in NYC, and will present a series of provocative self-portraits rendered as paintings, photographs, and film.
In this collection, Marshall examines the intersection of identity, female sexuality, and consumer culture through metaphorical self-portraits that act as a two-way mirror, reflecting on Marshall’s own dual nature while judging herself from within a culture based on a constant comparison to the “ideal woman.”

“A Woman is a beast.  She is as lovely as she is repulsive.  She is one part demon and one part goddess...one part slave, one part muse...one part child and one part mother...these contradictions are what make a woman so intoxicating.” - Andrea Mary Marshall
