Khayla Welch

Zimbabwe born, Auckland Based artist Khayla Welch works within themes of memory and the ways in which a memory may be influenced through imagery. Notions of perception, visual glitch and pixelation have been at the forefront of her practice. Khayla explores these through the technique of weaving found imagery from her childhood in Zimbabwe and weaving them with childhood photos of New Zealand. The weaving acts as a link bringing two separate images and worlds into one composition, a visual reconstruction of a mismatched memory. Khayla recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours at The University of Auckland (Elam).
