Jennifer Murphy’s work pairs images on facing pages, and, in addition to this, printed on translucent paper, back-images that filter through. On the cover, a white rose, through which filters a black hole. Open the book to a second hole filtering through superimposed pictures of a woman’s face. A line leads onward, into the cranium, uncovering layers of animal, insect and vegetable, to a magnificent tapestry and a woman in darkness, the form of a wolf filtering through and rising upon her head. This book traces steps on a path into the dark, toward an appearance of annealed strength.
