My practice is centralised around the idea of memory and how this can distort over time. With particular emphasis on my childhood home I explore the meaning of memory and the viewers own personal narratives that can be unfolded through looking at my intimate documentation.
Childhood is structured by routines to create a consistent and predictable future. These patterns often dissolve into unmemorable repetitive actions, allowing only the singular unusual events to be remembered. But what happens when this, along with your memories are removed?
I work predominantly with print media, using lithography and chalk/charcoal rubbings as my current methods. I enjoy how the rubbing works with the theme of memory, it takes an exact replica of something that once was but equally changes it whilst doing so. In my lithographs I often work with black and white film photographs, shot in a documentary style. Photographs that are then transformed into plates with little editing to preserve the memory.
I have also created text-based pieces to be used in my work that push the limits of context and understanding. Through contemporary presentation the reader/viewer will have to decide for themselves what they take from the work and the personal memory, if any.
