Jamie Rochester | We Made Eye Contact for a Split Second | 2013 | paper cutting | 85 x 68.5 cm

Artist Statement

Cut from a single sheet of black paper using only a scalpel, the artist depicts the face of a man with whom she crossed paths with while living on the Sunshine Coast; engaging in eye contact with each other for only a short moment, before continuing on their separate ways. In this work Rochester explores the fading relationships between the residents of our local communities, and how this affects the way in which we interact with one another on a daily basis.
