Scenes From a Marriage is an autobiographical look at Nicholson's own marriage. But it is also about the institution of marriage as it has developed in North America. The works are insightful and bristle with humour. Nicholson's meld of feminist politics and folk art aesthetics provide an exciting backdrop for this exploration of the marital arrangement. Her use of personal and family history as a site for endeavour speaks to a new feminist analysis where the personal becomes political and in the microcosm a more general picture emerges.
