My girls have large, out-sized faces, forcing the viewer to engage with their knowing expressions. They inhabit a world where all is dissociated; no matter how closely they are physically to each other, there is never any emotional connection. Their gaze is stronger inwardly than outwardly; asking for attention whilst avoiding interaction. The composite, larger images intentionally shifted perspectives and postures to reinforce this sense of total dislocation. I used smooth, self-disguising blurred brush marks or pastel on tracing paper to mimic the snap-shots from which I worked and to create a coolness to belie the emotional intensity of the work.
