Mixed Media including wood, beeswax and paint

Many of us have left a certain place or even homeland behind, the vividness of which is etched in our memories.

The series consists of landscapes that spring directly from the memories of persons I interviewed about a place significant to them, and to which they no longer have access. The work captures these memories, re-imagined and made manifest as fragile wooden landscapes.

Those fragmented, even transitory, memories are then pieced together as single scenes in drawers placed at eye-level - immersing the viewer in a series of shifting environments. The concrete and the imaginary become blurred, crystallising mood and time.
