My work involves reworking my memories and impressions in order to recapture them in their literal sense. I strongly believe that reality is concentrated within images (drawings and paintings), that images are the things they represent. I revisit my past and my memories to reinterpret and accept what was and is no longer, what could have been and what should have been. I am captivated by pictorial matter and the way it can transform what is visible. I venture beyond the figurative through the eyes of others. I use what is visible to reach out to the otherwise unseeable. My figures and the places that host them come together; they shroud and reveal themselves… What disappears appears, like waking from sleep, it fades away. Built upon a familiar memory, these new bonds change register through the medium of layered paint, which I liken to the layers of memory - somewhat clear, somewhat muddled.
