FROM DECAY

'Preservation' illustrated in photographic self-portraits a process of scarring and decay, a certain loss of recognition and the irreversible nature of damage, the works in 'From Decay' express more of that loss.

 

After five miscarriages and never being able to have children 'mother and child' remains a theme I go back to, beyond the obvious reasons of returning to such imaginary, it also expresses the ideas and ideals we nurture within ourselves, things we give life to.
