Dolls Theatre: 1990-1997


In these paintings, animals, dolls and toys are used to create a human theatre that is filled with despair, longing and fulfillment. These characters become actors in the performance of a life deeply felt. These scenes detail human frailty, pathos and pleasure. The stories, The Secret: Art and Healing from Sexual Abuse (Safer Society ©1999) and Clara: The Pigeon with Cement Shoes, mirror the profound malaise that can be the product of trauma and the epic heroism that is seen in trauma recovery.
