Putting her best shiny-gold-heel forward, a blonde bombshell topples between control and abandon.

Do blondes really have more fun? Katy Pendlebury’s protagonist teeters and topples her way along a line between beauty and ugliness, control and abandon. Treating the frame as a canvas, surface and texture become metaphors for the relationship between public veneer and private person.
