‘At first the work looks structured and repetitive, a collective; on closer inspection each piece is individual and unique’. Objects tell stories of people’s lives, often holding personal and collective meanings of a particular time, place, and event. Inspired by nature in the everyday and documenting found curio from her travels, Fay has recorded different perspectives, framing and revealing various cultures and social events as a result. Observing codes within nature, wonders of the world and street art, are some of the subjects she draws upon to create her works. The late Victorian era is also a prominent influence, featuring related narratives and celebrating her heritage. Since May 2011, Fay has recorded a series of ‘Travelling Buddha’ photographs with a hand-made figure included in the images. From England to Japan, she developed her work and understanding to reflect upon the event and environment, capturing the essence of personal moments in time that were memorable through intimate ceramic installations.
