The work is from the series, ‘Losing Home, Losing Self’ which explores the impact of the loss of attachment to the family on self identity when an individual becomes frail and elderly and is forced to move into a Residential Aged Care Facility.The work explores the fragility of the elderly and the ever increasing reliance on mobility aids to assist in moving around without assistance from family and friends, thus, increasing independence and the continued confidence.

This work celebrates the ability of the individual to continue to move and participate in the community with the assistance of mobility aids.

I hope that this image will feature at Backspace Gallery in April.
