A stamp-size portrait made from fragments of photographs, framed by the spacious expanse of the 'blank' sheet of black paper. ‘Ma’ as in mother, and ‘Ma’ as in the Japanese term that refers to the ‘empty’, ‘negative’ spaces in works of art and design, but more accurately implies a sense of spaciousness, and presence through absence.
