Kirsty Hall - Stained Cup
Kirsty Hall – art, photograph of Stained Cup

About five years ago I went through my mother’s cupboards and took a series of documentary photos of the objects I remembered from my childhood. This photo is my favourite from the series.

The cup in question is a plastic cup from my granny and grandad’s old caravan. The caravan – and my grandparents – are long gone but the stains of their endless cups of holiday tea remain.

I am an artist & purveyor of obsessive projects based in Hebden Bridge, England. My work involves the accretion of large numbers of small objects - pins in fabric, knots in string or hundreds of envelopes - to make sculptures that deal with fragility, loss, repetition, obsession and time.
