…a delayed reaction to a surprising or significant situation after an initial failure to notice anything unusual —usually used in the phrase do a double take (Mariam-Webster Online)

By utilizing imagery of mirrors, Khadijah Morley’s work in Double Take asks viewers to ruminate on the notion of spectatorship. Emanating from the mirrors in Khadijah’s linocuts is a central gaze that refuses to break eye contact. This unflinching gaze is a placeholder for her own subjectivity in which all are implicated as one gazes with her through a mirrored reflection.

Khadijah Morley (she/her) is a Tkaronto (Toronto) based artist with a BFA in Drawing and Painting and a minor in Printmaking from OCAD University. Through the process of etching and relief printing, Khadijah explores the complexities of Black womanhood through an autobiographical lens. She often uses self-portraiture to deconstruct the fallacy of a Black monolithic experience. She hopes that her subject matter serves to expand discourse surrounding Black subjectivity. Khadijah’s work invokes notions of hooks’ oppositional gaze and Du Bois’ double consciousness.
