Is the Familiar Always Comfortable?

This collection intertwines the past with the present, taking inspiration from the decorative soft furnishings within Amy’s Grandparents' current home and the industrial city of Portsmouth where her father lived until the age of 14. Combining these domestic (interior) and urban (exterior) landscapes enables the ornate and the corroded to sit in conjunction with these uncanny mixed-media outcomes. The contrasting surfaces suggest the familiar is not always comfortable.
