Artist's StatementMy work is a response to found photographs of young women and girls posed in formal settings with the individual often surrounded by political or religious artefacts.
I am interested in the process of domestication the women seem to be subjected to in which they can appear patient, content, outwardly accepting or quietly mutinous, as they wait and hope to become themselves.
While much of my earlier work dealt with issues of conditioning and isolation within the home, my most recent portraits deal witha sense of identity in the wider world in times of displacement and uncertainty.
Although the subjects depicted are largely from another time, the issues they are dealing with are universal and still relevant today.
