Drifting Away II
is part of a series which documents Jae’s father’s decline into dementia. Drifting Away II is an attempt to represent the dementia patient’s world. Isolated figures who lie in reclining chairs or beds, float in blank white spaces as staff nurses represented by the dark blue patches and the auxiliary nurses, the pink and white stripes, randomly spin in and out of their patients’ vision.
Jae has an Hons. Degree in Fine Art. She is a freelance teacher and author and regularly exhibits in the UK and abroad. She is Chair of the 62 Group of Textile Artists.
