Garden of Peculiar Thoughts
Original artwork with elements of collage. This piece is part of the ongoing series 'Hiraeth' in which I try to process the feeling of nostalgia.
Size of the artwork: 80x60x2 cm
Hiraeth – a word that at once signifies homesickness, nostalgia, and grief caused by the yearning for a place you can no longer return to. This multi-layered Welsh word fully embodies the spirit of my project.
For this series of mixed media paintings, I have chosen to incorporate elements of paper collage intertwined with traditional painting. The ‘cutouts’ are sourced from paintings of old masters, antique illustrations, and found vintage photos - the perfect metaphor for “memory”. By cooperating with painters and photographers through the time I am searching for answers to questions - are memories best left untouched, a perfect record of the past? Or are they something to be part of our present?
