I have an extremely good memory.   

Memory is uniquely selective about what adheres and what falls away.   Memories can be sharply defined episodes recorded in detail, with specific feelings, and moving images.  Other memories are fluid and often fragments of texture and color which may themselves trigger emotions.  I think of memory as a shadow which lingers from encounters and places.    

Memory, influenced by time, place, and experience forms the catalyst for my paintings.  I believe my paintings are often an attempt at resolution of memories that are stuck like films on continuous replay.  It is my hope that the viewer’s own memories of places and experiences will be triggered by these works.  The greatest compliment for me is for the viewer to find his or her own meaning in my work. 

All of the paintings in this show are acrylic.  All works were completed between 2015 and 2019.
