The pictures are terrible I will swap them for better ones when the work is complete – so apologies for that. And the work needs finished and a bit of a tidy up so…. well bear with me thats all 😉
The work uses my great auntie Marys various collections. She collected matchboxes and jewellery and had many photographs. As a kid I was completely enthralled when looking through her tin boxes full of trinkets. Time has passed and the objects have slowly lost the anchor of their original purpose.
So I wanted to celebrate those memories – to celebrate the people depicted and to wonder about the origins of all those matchboxes.
I might have some interesting news regarding this project so stay tuned kiddywinks.
