This collection of paintings emerge from the intersection of two fascinations:
I am a collector: imagery from dreams, ephemeral materials, personal anecdotes, archetypal symbols and myths that evoke a flashback – or faint sense of familiarity.
I observe body language, fleeting moments and peculiar ways people connect to each other and co-exist, looking to honor the subconscious mind.
The results reference the ghostly, unfixed memories that make up our collective personal histories. I honor the fact that memory is not fixed, and is instead, a process of reconstructing, distorting, omitting and then passing on through generations. I’m particularly interested in what we choose to remember and what we choose to forget.
