Description

Anna Gaskell (American, b. 1969).

This portfolio is offered unframed.


In Gaskell's Atonement, a figure struggles, her body morphing ineluctably between unruly animal and contrite child. Her entrapment resonates with the minotaur of Jorge Luis Borges' The House of Asterion, imprisoned behind unlocked doors surrounded by ample empty space. Her penance parallels that of Carlo Collodi's puppet Pinocchio, whose physical transformation to beast of burden follows that fateful trip to Pleasure Island. The punishment hardly fits the crime, yet the woman embraces the penalty in the hopes of atonement.
