Priscilla is moved by people and their stories. Making art to her is about inviting people to look closer, to grasp at intangible meanings found within relationships. She believes that art can help us to feel real again, because most times we forget to feel at all. Perhaps it is only in this way that we can realise there is more to life than our own.

Final Year Project(s)
Making Space is an attempt to find lost relationships between my immediate family and myself. The series was made over a two-month stay with my mother and brother, with whom I have not lived with for almost ten years. While documenting my time in their home and allowing them to be part of my process, I was struck by a deep sense of intimacy. The act of making enough space for each other physically and emotionally stirred up forgotten longings for familial love, while making apparent the reality that there will always be underlying imperfections within a family.
