Susannah Douglas' work is concerned with representations of the human figure through portraiture. Pose, gesture, attire and composition are examined, utilized, repeated and reflected. Using a range of sources, fragments are spliced together, reconstructed and reflected back at themselves to affirm notions of a contrived sense of represented identity. Douglas employs collage and highly intricate pencil drawings whose fragility is in contrast to the legacy of portraiture and to the throwaway nature of the photocopied image.
Palindrome Diptych centres around a large scale collage piece from which a new series of drawings is drawn and then mirrored. The relationships between the collage, the pairs of drawing and the space are explored through these repeated elements.
