‘Doesn’t feel real’, (2021)

 

‘I really loved him’, ‘D’you know?’ and ‘Doesn’t feel real’ are part of an oil pastel series, investigating grief, family and isolation. After a huge family loss, I became drawn to the nostalgia and comfort within old photos, noticing the isolation often felt despite being surrounded by family, a feeling paralleled within the pandemic. The hazy, unfinished quality mirror the nature of memoires with room for any narrative or perspective.
