As my work evolves, I have become increasingly fascinated with the essential and the metaphoric. There are no longer theatrical props, and the need for the human image as my exploration of Tomboyism is altering.
I am testing whether landscape can create some of the core experiences of a Tomboy, with the photography representing archetypal states to explore adolescent emotions such as isolation, being frozen out, boundaries and divisions, desolation, which side of the fence one is sitting on, and the beauty and purity that also encapsulate the Tomboy.
My work is continuing to explore the experiences of being a woman, but I am focussing on the missing voice of the Tomboy. Investigation persists to locate images and narratives that do not patronise the rights of a female to be non-feminine.
It is possible that the corporeal image will fade as I wander through the metaphorical landscape to articulate my theories.
