Near & Far
Using family photos and other vintage images I place figures and objects into new surroundings, sometimes real, sometimes imaginary.
The contrast between subject and landscape challenges both our sense of space: far and near; and time: past and present.
In doing this I hope to bring the subjects nearer to us by presenting them afresh.
"The rich world of textures, fabric, and ephemera invites the viewer to peer beneath the surface of her multilayered work. She leaves the viewer intrigued, which allows space for the observer, inviting them to interpret the picture and unravel its mysteries."
