Separation Anxiety

Self portrait with 
agoraphobia 

A full size self portrait, on a wall height strip of paper. The drawing is then torn to pieces, screwed into balls, and placed in a paper bag. The materials used are domestic in nature, and as things that you might come across in a home; charcoal, wallpaper lining, and a paper bag, they reflect a state of mind longing for home, and the feeling of security. In display, the screwed up pieces of paper escape the bag, in a manner dictated by the space they are placed in.
