Then Carol's face was scarred in an accident, and she proposed that Kim should take her place for a year while the scars faded. After winning a big beauty contest in Carol's place, Kim found herself in great demand. Snow White and the Seventh Dwarf: Sara White is nicknamed Snow White by her father. She finds one of the garden gnomes is actually the youngest of the Seven Dwarfs.
His name is Grem, and he has been disowned by the other dwarfs for running off with a gang of naughty elves and then turned into stone by a witch for playing tricks. The name of Snow White was needed to break the spell, and now that has happened, Sara is trying to help Grem reform so his brothers will forgive him. Second Hand Sal - Sal Edwards has to keep the fact that her mother is now running a used clothes stall secret from her friends. Madame Rochelle, the principal, works her hard, but Dana wants to learn more about ballet.
She worked rapidly and rhythmically, casting quick glances in my direction from behind her easel while sketching the outlines of my features. I soon fell into a kind of revery, a trance-like state induced by too many drinks, too little sleep and the need to keep sitting upright in the same position. As the sun slanted in through the high windows, time seemed to slip sideways into another dimension. Still Mandy continued to work, sometimes smoothly and precisely, at other times stabbing at the canvas with her brush as if she were attacking it.
Again I found myself wondering what the result of all this frenetic activity would be. Finally, though, she seemed to be satisfied.
As she told me to relax, that the sitting was now over, I checked the time and was astonished to find that something like 90 minutes had passed since the sitting had begun. In some ways it seemed much longer, and in other ways much shorter, as if the whole experience had taken place in the blink of an eye.
My view of time seemed to be slightly distorted, as if I were looking down the wrong end of a telescope. While it is certainly recognisable, there is a certain amount of subjective expressionism at work that I find really interesting. This expressionistic quality was only heightened in the finished picture which Mandy mailed to me some weeks later.
Maybe a dock-worker after a pub crawl on the waterfront, maybe a trucker, maybe an off-duty circus performer. Whatever the case, there is definitely more than a hint of criminality around the eyes, something a little dangerous or threatening. The fall of the Berlin Wall and the huge political changes of the time meant that routes into art were often indirect.
Thus, for example, Mandy Friedrich began her working life in horticultural jobs, trained as a florist then proceeded to study at the College of Design in Plauen. During this period, she produced landscapes, portraits and figural paintings. She became a freelance artist in She feels committed to this, and reproduces the theme repeatedly.
A small picture from gives an early indication of the direction her painting would take. Areas of blue and violet form the compositional scaffolding around her. Her red hair and the yellow dot on the back of her chair make for a taut colour contrast. The work seems to be keeping a secret, to be a dream full of sadness, drama and internalised sensibility. Later portraits are of people whose total immersion in a particular moment fills the whole picture.
