The trappings of femininity imply the constraints of society and women complying with these expectations 'proper behaviour' and its limitations, female sexuality and its complexities, the expected roles of wife, mother and whore. This work refers to the body by its absence, and in this way is a form of portraiture describing different aspects of a personality by using the disguises women wear daily. There is a direct connection in this work between art and life, (the fabric has touched the paper) preserving memories of expressions of love.
Darkroom based work (no camera = no negative = unique prints, no editions), both in colour and black & white, using the combination of feminine items of clothing with the historical technique of the photogram. Exploring the concepts of femininity and feminism, notions of identity, the overtones implicit in certain types of clothing, gender roles from innocence to active sensuality, the domestic environment, using colour and form to create unique poetic images.
