Stomping prancing woman
In Rochelle Summerfield’s prints, collaged elements – magazine cut outs, photographs, oil pastel drawings – are provided uniformity in the surface of photographic print. The subversion and play here is in the content, and in the bringing together of disparate, at times jarring visual elements. Limbs are removed from their perfectly-proportioned models’ bodies and made into stomping, prancing, exalting figures. They are removed from the unreality of studio backdrops and placed within landscape scenes from around the Northern Rivers, suggesting a reconnection with nature for a sector that has long since removed itself from reality.
