Artistic Statement

Depicting lost memories of a childhood football match, these works explore the interconnected themes of misfortune and serendipity, and the way these subjective points of view can affect the shaping of identity. The sensitive subject matter of a childhood football injury is explored through the use of toothpaste, this vulnerable material used to symbolise the fragile world of childhood dreams, set in pastel coloured landscapes of park football matches and 90’s football paraphernalia.
