Contramemory by Michelle Maxine






An art teacher and freelance illustrator working predominantly around themes of memory, loss and human idiosyncrasies, GSA Bachelor of Arts graduate Michelle Maxine caught our eye with a publication that addresses amnesia in an alternated view.

Michelle explains: “Predominantly grasped negatively, contramemory explores the topic in an otherwise unaccepted positive light. Written in an autobiographical manner through my personal life as a vehicle for story making, it takes viewers into the life of May through a recollection of trivial memories, whimsical observations and commentaries. Though wholly seemingly trivial as a harmless regurgitation of random memories, contramemory explores ergodic literature, metaphorical illustrations and writings that subtly transcend the notions of amnesia and the reality of immutable tragic aspects that contribute to one’s life.”
