 Pressie for the Rellies Back Home
Vintage tablecloth, copper, enamel, silver, yarn, found objects 89cm x 80cm x 13cm (approx)
This work celebrates my childhood, a time when I was bright-eyed with the possibilities of the future. It honours the souvenir gifts and letters posted by my immigrant parents back to their families in Britain, telling of the new life they had found in Australia. Through
the blending of traditions and culture, metamorphosis and adaption I visualise a love letter to my extended family ‘back home’, letting them know that we are thriving.
