Artist’s statement

The criteria for defining the notion of ‘home’ are influenced by an individual’s identity. Hence, by exploring my own Macedonian heritage and existing cultural values, the familiarity of home has been expressed through a metaphorical blueprint. The transitory nature of this ‘blue home’ reflects my family’s change in lifestyle from Macedonia to Australia, and the conglomeration of past memories with present experience imprinted on the ‘blueprint’ reveals a continually developing but genuine representation of home.
