Grey Matter. The project is a response to: memory, archive, history, social structure and the medium itself. This latest work is a visual expression of the artist’s own feeling to ancestry, and the ‘Family Album’.

I made the work as a response to my grandparents photos that i found when my grand father died. I found an old photo album of photos of my great grand parents and began to think about the structures of the Family Album and many large gaps in my own. My grandparents are a mystery to me. The work was a investigation of this, as i was trying to patch the ‘gaps’ my family history, but the project became about the gaps themselves.

The work is deliberately left ambiguous, people see different things and have their own responses and subjective views of the images. ‘Grey Matter’ being the brain tissue that we do not fully understand, and in some people is more crucial than others.
