Sights of Stockport

What do I remember most about the place that has shaped me? What do you remember about the places that shaped you? How do those places remember us? Inspired by the symbiotic concepts of memory and place, my work explores the relationship between places and personal and collective memory through the addictive notion of nostalgia. This body of work is based on my own childhood home, Stockport, a large post-industrial town just south of Manchester, the kind of place that will be familiar to many. I chose to create my own personal archive or ‘souvenirs of memory’: objects, maps, postcards and recollections. All of this layered and juxtaposed through printmaking to make a complex map of imagery more than mere topography.
