Woman with lens

1989-90

White-painted polyester resin, fibreglass, beech, oval wooden base

The subject is shown stood upon a circular base, as if appearing spot lit in a public arena. Despite the subject's environment, the subject, as with Supplication, appears quietly contemplative, she appears concerned with personal thoughts. The subject holds and views an oval frame that suggests both a mirror and the symbolic shape of female gender. We are left to consider whether the subject is pondering her advancing years or the lost fertile years of her existence.
