Oh, Behave. Denise Higginson MFA thesis exhibition August 25 - 30, 2014 A couple sits together, their legs intertwine, so as to knot them up. Noodle arms embrace and enwrap torsos. Entangled limbs and bodies are reflected in the leaves of the wallpaper behind them, it weaves and interconnects, dissipates into the figures; confusing figure and ground. The profusion of the false foliage in the pattern reflects the growing affection between the couple. This series is a portrait of a couple, perhaps of another species? A species that sports matching bouffant hair-dos.
