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?
This painting contains high-quality giclee cutouts sourced from the artwork "Young Woman with Unicorn" by Raphael as well as some vintage illustrations.
