Stacie McCormick

The scaffolding behind all of my work is a deep fascination with what it is to remember, and the accumulation of layers of memory that constitute the complex individuals we become. Memory is trusted and revered yet it is neither consistent nor reliable and as such it is continuously manipulated and exploited. I capture images with the aim to sculpt memories. My compositions are carefully ‘excavated’ from the mundane and isolated against the void to emphasize the overlooked and unnoticed over the focal and noteworthy. They are not narratives but fragments of fragments, striking moments of unconscious familiarity triggering memories that never were yet may well have been.
