DEPT. OF METAMORPHOSES


Transmogrifications I

     A discriminating eye will note certain repetition of forms in these four images but that is merely incidental. The intent here was not to create a set of variations on a theme but, starting with the same original elements, to create images that are as different as possible in color, texture and feeling. "Feeling?" asks Prickles, "Color and texture I get, but what is feeling?" Simple: it's how you, the viewer, feel when you are looking at and seeing the image. "Could be anything," she says, "hungry, angry, perplexed, delighted, nauseous, bored, etc. But that's more about the viewer than about the image, isn't it?" Not for any one particular viewer. For the same viewer, different feelings are evoked by specific, namable characteristics of different images. Still, it's true that the same image can evoke different feelings on different occasions because the viewer has changed. Seeing an image is a complicated and contingent process. "You got that right," she says.
