My work focuses on explaining how my mind is processing the loss of my dad who died when I was 10. I have been looking at his work from when he studied here in the 1970s and implementing elements of his work into my own work, using colour separation screen-printing and multi-layered screen-prints to create “3D images” of his prized possessions. This creates an unclear image of the object for the viewer to examine at their own discretion. I found that although this was a difficult subject for me to pursue it was also one that sparked my interest the most. I chose to draw my cross sections for my screen prints by hand and not expose them fully for the screens which is why they are uneven.
