Memory is an important idea within my work. This is expressed in my collage technique, through an iterative process of peeling and scraping back layers of paper and adding new layers to shift tone and colour. In doing so, past recollections are revealed and new responses added.
The small scale and dioramic display of each collage is also important in conveying the intimacy of the subject matter.
Together the work becomes embedded with memories and associations like a living palimpsest.
