Sense of Place

During lockdown, I began to look through old family photographs, negatives and slides. The process of looking through these was emotional and lockdown heightened this. This led me to think about our place in the world, where we call home, what it means and what role memory plays in this. This work explores the place between the physical and spiritual worlds and is in response to engaging with family images and visual moments that evoke feelings and memories. When these moments are experienced, the veil between this world and the next can become very thin. Just for a moment, people we have lost feel closer, memories become clearer; some solace to be found in the midst of the pandemic.
