‘FROM THE GREATER SILENCE’

Inspired by the Canadian folk art tradition of memory wares, was brought to my attention while viewing the Mike Kelly retrospective at MoMA PS1, New York, in 2013. I have designed my own interpretation of this folk art practice using gemstones, crystals, glass beads and heirloom jewels collected from family and friends.

Also referred to as Memory Sculptures, the catharsis poured into this project is largely representative of my feelings and thoughts on loss, death ritual and totem objects.
