Dear Mr Lancaster,
I am currently a student at a Lincolnshire College, and as part of my course, I have to take a lesson called Key Skills. Recently, in Key Skills, my group and I have been studying the way people can use art to express themselves. As part of this topic, we discovered the Voices Forum. Your work particularly caught my eye.
The above piece
grabbed my attention most of all. It made me wonder what exactly
you were trying to convey by using the composition shown. I
noticed that the background was very open, and looked like a very
lonely place. I also wondered why different parts of the body
were in different sections of the shelves/cupboards. I thought
this could have shown you felt like you were in a mess about
something, and that the mirror was there to make you reflect on a
Another thing I was questioning was why there are clothes hanging up. I thought that this could have meant that you had given something up; like smoking?
I would be extremely grateful if you would be able to give me any information about the questions I have asked above. Thank you.
