Artist Statement - The Looming Heirs

I use five specific ornaments that have been willed to me as heirlooms.
 
These ornaments have been within the family for three generations. 

I have a great sense that these, once innocent, small, ornaments have been party to the ups and downs, struggles and strife of my family through the generations and have become, somehow, vessels absorbing energies throughout these generations. 

I have depicted these ‘charged’ ornaments playing out the dynamics throughout my period of existence with them, from their positioning and understanding of our family throughout my own lifetime.
 
They help to explore anxieties, tensions and mental well being within relationships and touch upon various issues common to all families whilst exploring the outcomes of internal and external forces upon all of us.
 
Indeed, there upon their shelves and mantelpieces, they become for me the ‘looming heirs’.
