Martha Rich

Smithsonian Magazine - - Contributors -

Af­ter a 15-year ca­reer in the cor­po­rate world, Rich quit her job and went back to col­lege—to art school, where she stud­ied il­lus­tra­tion. Now a teacher of the sub­ject, she is ac­claimed in the art world for a bold and col­or­ful style. In her col­lage­like paint­ing of the fake Aretha Franklin (p. 84), Rich reimag­ines the woman as a pa­per doll dress­ing her­self in an­other woman’s iden­tity.
