ROXANA HALLS
A HYSTERICAL WOMAN
2010
Oil on Panel
104 x 122 cm
Referencing both Charcot's late 19th century photographs of female 'hysterics' and Bosch's Medieval moral phantasmagoria, this work employs dark fantasy and sinister humour to offer frozen moments of a mysterious transformation.
This piece is a complex wooden construction made up of 9 individual panels recessed within one larger painted panel, with frames cut out of its surface, in order to create the impression of 9 windows, or cells.
