New Zealand based artist Sarah Dolby recently shared with us her new series of paintings, some of her most personal to date. Featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 26 and on our blog, Dolby’s whimsical narrative turns more dark here as she explores the emotionally turbulent world that lies within her Victorian-styled girls. Titled “Creatures of Habit”, the series consists of six oil on aluminum panel paintings where she introduces new subjects: The Collector of Worries, whose collection brings her both comfort and anxiety, The White Rabbit, a reinterpretation of the character from Alice in Wonderland, and a young girl who is a prisoner of her own thoughts.
