A personal piece reflecting my paternal family history as reported to me. I never knew my father though it was claimed his family was originally from a romany background, maybe so - I don't know but I remember my Paternal Grandmother very well and her traditional wall decorations. N.F.S

This piece is a personal one as it relates to where i come from genetically, historically. It is by design full of mostly fractured images and it represents rumour and influences both subtle and deliberate..this work is made in the way bits are put together to form a whole but the whole picture is by fact 'unknowable' designed to someone else's plan and only half shown. It is a very personal but it is also art and I am an artist, so in a way it defines me as I define it and in the process my individuality is assured if not truly understood or even reconcilable to others wishes. Thank you
