Artwork Description

Using the relief printmaking technique of “Linocut”, I translate vintage op shop treasures to construct my imagined family history. As a migrant child, these are the everyday “Kitchenalia” I dream belonged in my Grandmothers’ and Great Aunts’ kitchens. Memory, love, loss. Each object feels like an homage to my unknown elders.
Whilst making this series I discovered that my mother actually has some pieces that were her mothers, grandmothers and aunts. It wasn’t imagined after all. Friends now share their special pieces and associated memories of their loved ones, which gives me, the artist, true joy.
This piece was a finalist in the renowned Geelong Print Prize
