My practice focuses on the idea of identity and feelings of belonging. Through metaphor and symbolism, I create images that have a sense of nostalgia and contemplation, questioning my surroundings and slowly building a sense of place. Trailing Past is a personal reflective work of my cultural displacement, exploring various themes, through untitled images of woodlands. These images focus on space that has witnessed many personal and emotional moments during my childhood, while I was struggling to become accustomed to living in England, after immigrating from Poland at the age of eleven. I am now rediscovering those woods, helping myself heal, and beginning the process of moving on.
