    A Commemorative Artwork

    The children each chose a place for a picture and close up photograph was taken. After printing the photo was painted with some picture maker and turned over and placed on a piece of cloth. This was then covered with a sheet of kitchen towel and a roller was used to roll over the cloth in each direction until the picture was stuck to the cloth. This was then left to dry on a rack. The following day the cloth was soaked in a tub or water and the paper the photo was on was rubbed off gently, leaving the photo imprinted on the cloth. These were then left to dry again on a rack. After drying the cloth picture was covered with PVA glue and left to dry overnight. This process enhanced the picture and once dry the cloth was ironed and trimmed.

    Once all these processes were complete on each photo it was time to join all the pictures together. Sewing seemed to be the best option, but proved to be a mammoth task. A large piece of green material was laid out on a large table and each picture randomly laid in rows. Once all laid out, the edges were marked with chalk and the cloths removed and numbered. Rows of four pictures were then sewn together, side by side and then each row joined to the rest. The whole picture was then sewn onto the large piece of green material and runners were sewn at the top and bottom for poles to go into, so that the hanging could be put up.

    My greatest passion is taking photographs of the natural world, especially flowers. This year I have looked from afar and up close, exploring their patterns, shapes and colours and how they react to the sun. The majority of the images on my flower wall this year have been taken in the UK, with many captured in the garden of this house.

    On the other wall are photographs taken last year on my summer holiday. They were taken in Prague, Vienna, Attersee and Bratislava, all places connected with my family history. I have explored traditional postcard cliché images with detailed extracts from everyday life, such as door hinges and windows. The whole wall looks at time and new beginnings and how history can be brought to life in a photograph.

    The collection of photographs to the right of the desk were all taken in the old Jewish cemetery in Prague. These photographs are all about life continuing on around death, as demonstrated by the sun, the plants and the animals.
