Mandy is continuing her work on displacement, loss and inherited legacy. She is working on a series of large 2D mixed media pieces, one of which can be seen here. These pieces focus on the dual themes of traces and hauntings. Mandy is interested in events and imagery that manifest in our lives, often without our full knowledge or consent. These unconscious hauntings and traces of the past are the central drivers of her current work.
NEWS - SEPTEMBER 2019
Mandy is currently working on a project about displacement, loss and inherited legacy. It was inspired when in 2018, she received paperwork from World Jewish Relief documenting the support given to her father and grandparents when they arrived in England in 1938. Victims of Nazi persecution, they could not speak English and were virtually penniless. Much has been written about the way in which trauma and indeed loss can be transmitted unconsciously from generation to generation. It was with this in mind that Mandy began exploring her own narrative through a considered construction of visual and experiential pieces, shown in the group exhibition 'Unspoken' in August 2019. She intends to show new work from this project in 2020, including some large scale works and a performance piece.
