Jostle
- Maryanne Coutts

‘ Crowds that gather to admire, witness and celebrate are a particular type of social interaction, and create the context of Maryanne Coutts’ series Jostle. Focusing on the collected faces, Coutts describes disparate identities drawn to events and occasions with expressions that respond to the ebb and flow of the mass, while possessing individual personality and reaction to a common emotion. Depicted in ink drawings and watercolour paintings on paper the series is typified with multiple reactionary faces, frequently with a single visage maintaining direct eye contact with the viewer creating a focus point of concentration.’
