"Tasmania’s surrounding water stimulates contemplation, discovery and fabrication. It is the intrigue of what could lurk in the layers of water that encircle the island that has allowed me to reach beneath the surface to draw up my vision and interpretation of marine life." ~ Joy Allison

"Vivien looks right through the viewer with her piercing blue eyes. To me, she seems a little sad and insecure but still demands our full attention. The gold, silver and copper leaf in her head scarf change with the light and alter the mood of the work. This is a classic image of a screen icon."
