Artist statement

reminiscence is a series of small-scale drawings that uses charcoal pencil and pastel to  depict past experiences. It was created using photo manipulation of personal polaroid images, and blending of charcoal pencils and pastels to create a soft and fragile visual. reminiscence explores the idea of nostalgia. It delves into sensations of reflecting and longing for bygone memories, and the fine details within memories fading into the past.
