I was inspired by the collapsing structure of the West Pier, Brighton, and this formed the starting point for a body of work. I see a fragment as not only a broken part but a surviving part, a trace of the past. It is a presence imbued with ideas of absence. Dismantling and recombining the imagery references the idea of memory as a series of recollections that fade and reappear, and are then reassembled according to personal perception.
is imbued with a poignant skeletal beauty, the surviving architecture bearing testament to its former splendour.
