Do you remember your childhood?
Do you remember the feeling? The wonder, the innocence?
For myself it was a childhood full of daydreams and wonderment. The bush, calm and secluded. The night sky with its stars and vanilla milky-way, and the thousand colours in a single blade of grass.
Growing up on an idyllic farmlet, I spent my days wandering through the bush, giving my imagination free reign.
Now, as an adult, I manipulate and appropriate fragments of those times from my (embellished) memories, along with the books and ephemera of my childhood to capture those moments that we treasure, and make us who we are.
My artworks have often been referred to as ‘bedtime story’ assemblages. Using themes from the 1950’s, the ‘Age of Innocence’, such as the utopian nuclear family or my own ‘Enid Blyton’-esque children I create screenprints of innocence, purity, kitsch, nostalgia… schmaltzy!
My artworks, however, leave out particular details. There are no facial features. Like our childhood memories there is a void, an absence of detail that gets filled in by our adult self. We have to narrate the rest of the story. Viewer narration leads to coincidental, accidental and unexpected connections occur, leading to surprising analogies.
