Growing Up Fast
Screen Print on Somerset paper
76cm x 28cm
I did this piece as I was working a series of prints relating to my Grandma. The way in which objects can kind of represent a person without the person actually being there, was something that I found interesting. I made this print using shoes that had belonged to my daughter. I just couldn't bring myself to throw them away, and one day when I was looking at her tiny first shoes compared to the massive (it seemed to me) shoes she was currently wearing, I realised I had the perfect vehicle for making a piece about the passage of time and how things never stay the same.
Please note that this is a handmade print and there may be slight variations in the edition. Each piece is unique!
