Cuímhne (Memory)

Personal Work, 2019-

A series of sketchbooks used in researching and documenting the lead up to the creation of Stomaversary. The three sketchbooks acted as an informal documentational and notational device for a year spent in a hospital environment, questioning of an irish identity, featuring objects collected which surrounded these. This is an ongoing project.

This work is produced with a mechanical pencil, biro, and collaging materials due to being on the move and produced while on the move within means of mediums I could carry. This series plays with the page surface and the 'memory' of the reverse side, shadowing and adding layer and texture to the focal images.
