“Family: Where life begins and love never ends” - Unknown
The artwork I have produced this year has illustrated that my family are unconsciously providing guidance and fuelling my inspiration. The patterns reminiscent of high abstraction are boldly stitched in “Hello” and have been translated from my younger sister’s drawings as a child and now. I challenge the way we perceive what is considered ordinary by lifting it and recontextualizing it – giving it a new life whilst celebrating its history. Art-making allowed bonding time for my sister and me, in between her regular hospital check-ups and operations. These moments I cherish.
