The themes running through my work involve memory’s interaction with daily experience. Figures emerge from abstracted settings, which are a result of the confusing and sometimes overwhelming task of interpreting events both major and quotidian. I place my works into a “Memory Palace” – a way of placing each painting or drawing into a narrative that progresses as my life unfolds. Engaging with the world with the assumption of a faulty perception, I try to draw connections between events and ideas, occasionally utilizing mnemonic devices and exercises to both strengthen my memory and give a thematic structure to the work. This plays out on canvas with imagery that is at the same time personal, specific, and vague, with titles that at times seem completely unrelated, sometimes irreverent.
