Longing is a collage from a series of collages titled Objects, which can mean a physical object or an oppositional position. I like to use words that have more than one meaning, enabling a picture to be read in more than one way. Longing combines images and ripped pages from my old sketch books, a visual reclaiming, reconstructing something new from something old. I regularly reuse or work over my work adding to the meaning whilst also concealing history. Longing is about memory and what we remember/ forget, it is also about wishes and desires, some unachieved, others thwarted, yet still there. Waiting.
