Using a book of patterns found in Islamic textiles and art Carnwath creates a background of bold, fluid pattern of curls and arabesques over which she places images. Here these include Dick and Jane characters as glowing apparitions that
radiate from the midnight blue background. Other areas of the image have a misty or dreamlike quality that simultaneously reveal and obscure hidden images and objects.
