Silent Stirrings

‘Silent Stirrings’, a body of work that became a meditative response to the quiet memories of a still heart; my father, held in his handwritten letters. The overwhelming experience of death and loss, the trauma can dismantle one’s everyday life, order, logic and continuity. Going through various stages of grief, my work took shape in the form of prints, enamel, and sculptures.

Exploring the materiality of paper, I worked with the performance of folding paper while printing. A fold not only creases the paper but it also holds memory of that ephemeral gesture, it conceals or hides messages in a letter, making it private and personal.
