Elizabeth Ginno Winkler was a Berkeley-based artist, who attended Mills College where she majored in art and drama. This work is a Surrealist inspired depiction of a woman with one eye floating in a dreamy landscape. The subject’s direct gaze at the viewer makes this piece a great example of a powerful representation of a woman. Through the use of Surrealist’s tools, the fantastical background and the fictitious subject, Ginno Winkler has subverted the common depiction of women as either muse or mad.
