Harnessing a sense of nostalgia, Dominic Maffia is interested in the relationship between the photograph and the recollection of the ‘moment’.  His work evokes the nature of a photograph to provoke memories. He attempts to use the negative space in his paintings as a way of exploring memory. The Sisters series consists of several paintings based on a selection of photographs taken from Maffia’s family album between the late 1980s and early 1990s.
