Subtly alternating between image and object, Croggon introduces a slight gap, as one image, the figurative element, is overlaid onto the other, touching its edge. As before, the lines still converge – line meets pole, shadow meets leg – yet there is this pause that allows for oscillation between connection and disconnection, dependence and independence, as the viewer moves through the space of the gallery.
