I am interested in exploring the relationship between personal histories, identity and sense of place; between the historic built environment and collective memory. I have had several major exhibitions in Italy including one in an old asylum (Imola); another in a gallery within the confines of an ancient, de-consecrated church (Castel Bolognese); and a third in an 18th century Palazzo (Faenza ). The superimposing of the present over layers of the past is a concept relevant to my current research a dialogue between art and the traces left by those who have gone before. These images convey evidence of the rituals accompanying our use of buildings, fragments of our hopes and fears.
