Glasshouse – Drypoint

In a glass house, nothing is hidden.
In this image Alice is at a point of realisation, she knows she has outgrown this house. The house is decorative but she is restricted by it. This picture depicts the moment of her awareness. She has a sense of agency, she stares straight out of the picture engaging the viewer is if to say. I know you can see I have outgrown this place. I am ready to move outside the confines of this place. The landscape in the background, with clouds and trees promises more.
