This artwork is an appreciation for the memories with my grandmother. Two headless figures, pieces of furniture, and a plate of untouched sardines are suspended against the wooden texture of the board, emphasising our sensations and emotions during a treasured memory, rather than its actual setting. The postures of the figures suggest a moment of intimacy, serving as as poignant reminder that such memories and emotions cannot be relived again. The meticulous process of scumbling, layering and blending paint are reflective of desperate attempts to capture and eternalise these precious memories, before they too, efface with the passing of time._
