Vicki Painting

Legacy'Walking about' describes how a person with dementia will purposefully leave their home in a search for something significant. This word is used in preference to 'wandering' which infers aimlessness and within this context a kind of hopelessness. Reframing the landscape as a representation of the loss and absence of my father, I have retraced the steps of familiar sites last walked with him over forty years ago. These rediscovered landscapes feel complete and tangible, they function in such a way as to encompass the past but allow space for reframing and understanding. The idea of home is also included in the work as a contested site viewed as simultaneously familiar and unfamiliar, accommodating the trajectory of illness, and the need to salvage a legacy.
