THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE BAD GIRLS OF ROSE VALLEY
Much of my work develops through questioning and through iteration.
The Bad Girls were initially triggered by a sketch – surreptitiously made by looking at a reflection in a shop window, carefully drawing the activity rather than the attention – of three very bad boys noisily and aggressively abusing passers-by [see below].
Thinking around this drawing led to a whole series of images of Bad Boys engaged in unexpected activities which challenged the nature of their badness, including sharing their feelings, writing poetry and being generally supportive to each other [see opposite].
Swapping genders was an interesting exercise in itself but which, more importantly, eventually changed the focus of the project from questioning behavioural norms to a statement of personal joy and the importance of collective action in achieving that joy – each Bad Girl is dancing for their own pleasure, but in the same space, for the same reason.
My hope would be that we can all be so committed to the search as the Bad Girls, for ourselves and for our fellows, and that these drawings serve as a reminder to be joyful.
