Michaela Tuff



Artist’s Statement


Most of us can relate to the feeling of having a place that we recognise as our home, where we have made countless memories that bond us emotionally to the domestic space in which we reside. But what happens when we leave that place?  At first the memories that we make are vivid, we can see the space in our mind and picture even the smallest of details. But as time goes by these memories will become less clear, they will fade and twist until they are merely fragmented recollections of what was. Through the distorted imagery of her own domestic space, Michaela Tuff represents these fading memories in a response to her fears of forgetting her home when she moves from the house that she has become so attached with.
