Crafting Memory continues D’hage’s inquiry into the role and relationship between selected objects, being female and the painting process. Objects and motifs based on archetypal forms conjure up memories, emotions, reflections and associations of femininity. It is displayed currently with Russell Craig’s Slipstream, inspired by his travels or appreciation of the sea, referencing concepts of rhythm, motion and natural erosion. The works act as a symbolic metaphor for Craig’s own personal journey of travelling in the slipstream of those that have gone before.
