Holdall. Charcoal dust. 2011

Holdall. Charcoal dust on paper. 3 Panels @ 75cm x 150cm. 2012

For some time, I have been interested in the recollection of personal histories through objects. My experiments here, have involved utilising objects that are connected to a past experience, related to specific memories, people, places and events. The source material for these investigations include a holdall and its contents. Through dusting these with charcoal, their imprint or trace remains. The material application and x-ray quality of this treatment is I think, haunting.
