I’ve been working on this collage series for months now. I have a firm deadline as there’s about to be a Fourth and final inquest, on February 24, into the death of the baby girl, Azaria; a case that has lingered on for over 30 years.
I thought this piece was going to be the best yet, but something went awry in the creative process. I thought I’d experiment with colour on the woman’s face and be a little less concerned about likenesses and instead create a feeling for the person.
The result below is a little like Picasso vomit on a bad day. I’m not happy with it at the moment but I’m going to give it the ‘sleep on it’ test and see how I feel tomorrow.
The story behind this collage is quite intriguing and another bizarre twist to the Azaria story.
