"Hay's work probes the mystery of gender by creating composite images that do not identify a specific individual but rather embody the idea of flickering glimpses of sexual duality that so mesmerized Hay while she was living in Provincetown and the West Village. The ethereal nature of sexual identity is crystalized in her ambiguous portraits, where the subject appears simultaneously male and female."
