All is transient, everything flows and nothing lasts. What connects us most intimately to our individual past is memory but memory is fractured. It penetrates and recedes from the mind, distorting the lines between abstraction, fantasy and the felt presence of direct experience. Retrospection thus is at threat of becoming unstable as it falls victim to a constantly changing psychology and the adapting sensibility of the mind it harbors within. This series of paintings are a personal union of images that act to revive moments gone but not forgotten, using photography and memory as a process and a narrative, exploring and transcribing what was recovered and what remained lost in translation.
