My work primarily surrounds themes of memory, roots and family history. This project is an exploration into childhood memories and the way they emerge and form later in life. It looks at the way we remember events from our childhood and how often they are not accurate representations but appear in fragments, triggered by things such as colour, shape, pattern and place. Over time memories become abstract and obscure, and the events we think we remember, may actually have occurred in an entirely different way. This has been explored through looking at family photos and fragmenting them through collage, actively discarding areas of images and merging them with others representing the way in which memories can be imprecise and distorted.
