memoria is a series of cross-stitch portraits beginning with navy-on-white and working through a gradation of progressively lighter colours to a final white-on-white portrait. The inherent qualities of the heavily sized fabric used for the portraits are exploited as the fabric is folded, creased and crumpled in the more high-contrast portraits, a recent memory rich with detail, and less manipulated as the colours fade to white suggesting the fragility and fallibility of memory.
