Extract from Fran Henke artist statement
The plaster casts brought back memories of being encased in plaster when not encased by the Double Thomas. The torso was like an awful corset, I hated the scar where it had been cut off the willing model. As a sculptor and printmaker I have always enjoyed collage, so I covered it with stories, scans from the four books (Pooh, Alice, Wind in the Willows and Peter Pan) that mum read to my sister and me, over and over, and that I still treasure, defaced by my pencils. The frock was one my mother would have liked me to wear.
