Limited edition photographic collage using old family photos and postcards from the 1930's as well as textural scans from 1970's gardening books. 

These works are created as places of contemplation and reverie. 

~

Between World War I and World War II my Great, Great Aunts, (wealthy spinsters), travelled the world by sea.

Their travel albums have been passed down to me and are full of tiny old photos and curious postcards from the many places they visited across Asia, through the Suez Canal to Europe. 

The ghostly, faded sepia photos of people and black and white landscapes sparked my 'Reverie; the state of being pleasantly lost in a thought, daydream or memory.' 

I pondered the fates of the people in the photos and what became of their memories? Do memories simply disappear when the person passes or are they stored somewhere? Perhaps in a garden, across a sea, in a quiet moment or in a jumble. Like a dream.

'Memorarium' , a limited edition giclee print, http://www.darlingmillsstudio.com/shop/memorarium , was my starting point for this series. It is a memoriam to a little Dutch girl, in front of a Cornish landscape, an unknown sea and a faded, colourful garden in the foreground. This artwork is a terrarium in it's own right. A memory garden captured within the 4 sides of this image. (Memoriam + Terrarium = Memorarium) 

The characters in my pieces, mostly solo or trios, are long gone from our world. Yet here they are now, re-imagined in an expansive, liminal, contemplative space.

My name is Rachel Moodie (nee Wells) and I am an Artist, Designer, Maker and Mum. I am a Sydney based digital and mixed media artist. My hyper-real digital photographic montages piece many and varied photographs and scans together to form new ‘Places’ . These landscapes exist nowhere tangible yet retain a sense of the original location, altered as though in a dream and meshed with an underlying emotive storytelling. My work is in private collections in Australia, America and France.
