Artist Statement

‘The day yet without me’ 2011
‘Tree of life’ 2010

When I found this Victorian image of my great, great, grandmother my curiosity about my family linage was ignited. The women in this image, captured in 1899, was a stranger to me and yet she is still strangely familiar. I know only thing about her – the moment that kept her still for probably 15 min, to imprint her likeness forever. Through the image I see the genetic features we share and I am touched by her beauty and her wise look. Daily I study her, as though she holds some clue to these intangible bonds of family that I wish to understand.

These deep rooted connections of the family are like a tree that changes every summersame leaves only existing in a different period of time.

My interest in these family bonds and their power to transcend time were brought sharply into focus when by grandmother died. I suddenly felt the shift of positioning, to never again be a grand daughter.All my family have moved one step higher, making free space for someone who is going to come, space for another leaf.

‘Beyond Endless Seams’ 2012

‘Voyeurism I’ & ‘Voyeurism II’ 2012

‘Pulse of a sequence’ is a story of change. It’s told via images of gentle movements, such as flow of breath or pattern of seaside promenade. Repetition of simple moments creates a continuous fabric of unbroken reality. Layers and visual similarity subtly introduce the new.

Through replication, the cold abstract is nurtured to have a sun-kissed warmth. Yet these series brings about awareness of time and change on the viewer.
