Annabel Dover’s work deals with hidden meanings of objects which have been used to allow the socially acceptable expression of emotions. Her cyanotype, Iris’ Stocking presents a compelling image of a ladies seamed silk stocking. This image is even further charged by the story of Annabel’s grandmother who kept these stockings hidden as a secret memorial to her husband who never returned from the war. Many of the works from this series are held in the Imperial War Museum collection.
