'Welter' was made following the death of my partner, Leo, in December 2017. The work is a continuation of my thesis in which I considered the idea of clouds as feelings and a metaphor for grief. In turn I have begun to consider the idea of images as clouds that can take different forms, possessing the same mutable quality. By combining my late partner’s photos, appropriated images, artworks and text pieces, I explore grief in its various forms and attempt to embody a sense of both a personal and universal loss. This work is ongoing and perhaps can never settle in one form. Like clouds (and grief) it will constantly change, existing in one form for only a limited time.
