"David's Alice"
by sabine7 / August 7, 2005


Australian painter Jenny Watson adds her acrylics to more unusual backgrounds such as unprimed canvas, cotton damask, Indian organza and brocade, to produce self-portraiture using naïve techniques. The irregular lettering often employed by Watson to identify subjects or add to the picture is childish, and the lack of perspective also suggests a portrayal of regressive states tied to the emotional subject matter. But all is not heavy-handed. Sometimes Watson’s heroines are gals like Avenger Emma Peel or Wonderland’s Alice who counteract the fragility more apparent in other works.
