Artist's statement

McCaughey Street, Turner, 1959 is part of the series ‘Searching for the Family’. This work has been developed by reconstructing photographs from my family album dating back to the 1950s. As I explored my family photo album I came across images of family outings and simple snapshots of my family enjoying themselves. Through reconstruction I tried to relate to these moments. ‘Searching for the Family’ conveys nostalgia for the joyous times represented in my family photographs. My connection with these constructions reveals my strong desire to be there, to have been part of such wonderful and apparently happy moments.
