My work contemplates ‘small histories’, everyday memories of personal significance. The paintings focus on the past of the family, as understood through childhood memories and recollections. Fragmented and partial, the subjectivity of individual memory is explored in relation to photography’s evidential past. The paintings are personal explorations of this hazy area.
