In this body of work Pressed Memories beginning with found wooden ironing boards and transforming them into marking stones, obelisks or altar like pieces and in a sense a container of the lives lived. This form notes the ritualization of many domestic tasks in women's’ everyday existence. The manufacturer of the wooden boards gave them the title The Queen # 1 or The Princess. In these works Pressed Memories, I too, was trying to elevate the mundane to the rarified. Women and imagery link contextually in the work. First, with the object concerned with labour intensive, repetitive tasks given to women then linked with the Heroic /Goddess imagery that subtly plays with humour and paradox, the roles of women and their great spirit and capacity from the past to present.
