Flowerplay (Arrange them both)
2012. h:28.8cms x 48cms (framed).
This is the twelfth and last drawing in the series. The text refers to duality as the flower is made up of two identical petals, one open and one closed. This made me think of imagery exploring identity: so I used a pair of vintage dolls I found on a market stall. They are exactly the same doll, each wearing the same plastic high-heeled sandals, powdered wig and elaborate lace-trimmed velvet costume: but one is dressed as a male and the other female. This is not the first time that I have drawn these dolls and I find them so intriguing that it won't be the last.
