Sketch no.4. (for stage flat)

Holly Davey, Sketch no.4. (for stage flat), digital collage, 2021.

Sketch no.4 (for stage flat) was inspired by the work of Judith Goddard, Lyrical Doubt [accessible in the REWIND Artists’ Video Archive at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee, by appointment]. Goddard’s process of layering video images, with the silhouette of one image underneath another, echoed ideas Davey had been exploring in the studio with postcard cutouts of women by male artists. This digital collage is made in photoshop from an image of Edgar Degas’s, Dancer looking at the sole of her right foot, and an image of women protesting during 2021 about political and social events.
