The baroque and the classical are her subjects, as are Freuds Gradiva, Clerambaults writings and photographs of draped figures, and the fetishistic play between veiling and repeating. Doy explores the meanings of drapery in recent art, from Christos wrapped Reichstag to the impact of the modern womens art movement on fine art practice.
