GRADE - HONOURS
A soft high key study which is in keeping with the title. However this is an image which offers other kinds of interpretation upon repeated visits. Some of the questions we might ask are, who is she, where is she, to what are her eyes directed, and what is the relevance or symbolism of, the hair over her mouth, the foreground out of focus barriers, and the rough window frame? To what extent might she be captive in either a physical or psychological sense. The monochromatic/sepia rendition also provides a somewhat timeless aspect. This is an image of substance.
