Three women characters – child, prostitute and hysteric-  all aspects of one another, always isolated in space, but connected through action.

This work was inspired by the novel The Collector by John Fowles , Freud's studies into Hysteria.  and film images of butterflies fused with the faces of murdered women and children to evoke the violence that surrounds us but also emanates from within.
