Janet Matthews - Small Anxieties

As children, we used make-believe to help us face our fears. We could invent characters and situations to explore and develop solutions to a variety of anxieties. I use this strategy to create images that confront fears and fantasies, placing miniature dolls into imagined anxious moments. I leave it up to the viewer to use their own imagination to determine the outcome. These “small anxieties” are open to interpretation, standing in for fears that we all face and hope to master.
