‘The title ‘Into The Abyss’ refers to a silent, misunderstood space. Our work is interconnected as we both portray elements of isolation, confinement and a sense of loss. The work explores the emotional abyss of human isolation. Windows feature as portals and paradoxically as invisible barriers that separate the inner and outer worlds of perception and reality’.
Josephine: ‘In my work the human figure represents a physical and emotional degree of isolation visible through the different levels of the picture plane’.
Mary: ‘In contrast my work has a purposeful absence of the human figure to better express the invisibility of those who feel emotionally isolated and disconnected’.
