Chlorosis (Love Sick), 1994Ink, gouache, and synthetic polymer paint on paper 
South African artist Marlene Dumas based the twenty–four portraits comprising Chlorosis on Polaroid snapshots of people she knows and on newspaper clippings of strangers. Thin, exquisite washes of color suggest apparitions or psychic projections of internal states. The title of the work comes from the Greek word for light green, and describes an anemic disease marked by a characteristic green skin tone. Sometimes referred to as the virgin’s disease, chlorosis was considered a sickness caused by the intense suffering provoked by unrequited love. (via MoMA | The Collection | Marlene Dumas. Chlorosis (Love sick). 1994)
