Communing with Poppies

Communing with poppies is an immersive, site specific installation, with larger than life charcoal drawings illustrating a fantastical dream state. The eleven foot tall self-portraits describe two distinct personalities representing different facets of inner life and play with the ideas of power and powerlessness. The figures dressed in black gowns describe a harmful and unpredictable dream world, and the figures in white lace convey a wish for control and the desire for peace. The paper doll cut-out technique brings the viewer back to an age of innocence before being encumbered by worldly clamor. The work is to be read as a sequential narrative.
