My art practice explores the concept of memory and its ability to shape our perception of the world. I am particularly interested in the way that memories can become fragmented, abstracted, and distorted over time. Recalling and portraying memories is a key aspect of my artistic process. I select digital photographs from my childhood, which I then layer and manipulate using digital software to create visual representations of fragmented memories. Employing abstraction as a means of exploring the complexities of memory is another crucial element of my practice. By removing specific details and focusing on emotional instinct, I attempt to capture the essence of a memory rather than simply recreating it. The abstract aspect within my work also helps me to create artworks which are both personal and universal, inviting audiences to connect with their own emotions and memories.
