About the work 

When I navigate backwards through my life, through ruddy adolescence into the whimsy and protection of childhood, instead of a linear path I find disconnected scraps of lived experience. The blue of the tiles, the sting of the garden ferns.

I’m interested in the fragmentary nature of memory, the ways in which the past overlaps and tangles with the present. The longing that is born from it. My approach is tactile and playful, collaging photographs onto sunned wallpaper that if viewed on their own, act as cursory glances and intimate moments, but viewed together, form a nostalgic longing for the past,
the pictures become the breathing bodies of the boys I lived previously.
