Somewhere inside me is a merciful, forgiving person. Somewhere there is a girl who tries to understand what people are going through, who accepts that people do evil things and that desperation leads them to darker places than they ever imagined. I swear she exists, and she hurts for the repentant boy I see in front of me. But if I saw her, I wouldn’t recognize her.
I really love the use of lines of thread to create random geometric shapes in Isobel Adderley’s work. I find the use of a point/points away from the face in the negative space adds another level of interest to the image. In some of the images it appears that the model is pulling/looking away from this point, as if they are tethered to it but have the desire not to be.
