  • The material from these collages came from my grandfather’s shirts, which I found in my mother’s home. She could not discard the shirts. They represented a time that no longer exists, a time before the Second World War, when my family travelled by boat, with elegance. I feel a ghost of time left in these shirts. The fine strips and lines can be overlapped and repeated. I added birch skin.
