Attic Archive (Exhibited as part of 'Curious Cabinets' at Exchange Place Studios in October 2016.)
Investigating the importance of the family album once the accompanying verbal history is misplaced and exploring portraits as historical artefacts, Working with found images to create miniature fictionalised museum exhibits, the Attic Archive and the images displayed within represents the effects of aging, neglect and displacement.
Lost Memories (Exhibited as part of 'Out of Context' at Bank Street Arts in August 2013.)
Lost Memories is inspired by photographs I took after I lost contact with one of my old neighbours after he suffered a stoke. My neighbour had been really proud of his garden which was destroyed by workmen after he moved to a nursing home. My aim was to achieve a tender/cherished installation piece without the context of my relationship with my lost neighbour. I contrasted my images next to pressed flowers to try to express the destroyed beauty of the lost garden.
