Description

Little Girl O
Archival Ink on Cotton Rag Paper
Prints are signed and numbered on front
This is a limited edition of 250 prints at 11" x 8.5"
© S. Brett Kaufman, '15

'Little Girl O' is a portrait of Oprah Winfrey as a little girl.
The original assemblage is made up of the 64 books from the 'Oprah Book Club'.
A stencil has been made for each book, and then hand painted by the artist.

This piece seeks to portray Little Girl Oprah, growing up impoverished, abused, troubled;
and against all odds, triumphing, and making something of her life.
The books represent not only her belief in education and learning;
but also, her desire to share and to give back. To influence as well as inspire others to grow.

S. Brett Kaufman is a San Francisco-based artist whose work is inspired by the numerous biographies he has read over the years. His ongoing series of surrealist portraits has been twenty years in the making. Brett's work is created using one of, or a combination of the following: photography, collage, and assemblage. He often thinks of his work as a puzzle that is put together piece by piece, similar to a mosaic. Each image has a separate story to tell; and likewise, a separate technique involved.

Kaufman's work has been presented in museums, galleries, and alternative spaces as varied as San Francisco City Hall, SF Camerawork, Sacramento's Crocker Art Museum, New York's Monique Goldstrom Gallery, and the Rumbach-Synagogue in Budapest, Hungary. In '96 “Ode to Harvey Milk” became the poster and playbill for the San Francisco Opera’s production of “Harvey Milk The Opera”. Brett's imagery, has graced the covers of The SF Bay Guardian, Frontiers Magazine, and over 30 issues of the San Francisco Sentinel. His art has been enthusiastically received over the years, and sits in many prestigious collections, including the Rene de Rosa Foundation in Napa Valley, the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam, and sold through the United States Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C.
