Katherine Bull, Gabrielle Guy, and Toby
On the left Toby's drawing of Gabrielle. Toby (surname unknown) was visiting the gallery and was keen to join in. We thought it a good experiment. On the right is Katherine Bull's drawing. Two very different drawings made from the same description, each bearing its own uncanny resemblance to Gaby.
Katherine and Gabrielle trade chairs. Toby leaves. While Stan's malevolent self stares from the wall.
