My paintings explore the limits and inadequacy of memory. Both paintings and memory are malleable. The process of painting I employ involves navigating a composition in constant flux. While I am creating a painting I allow the forms to fall apart before I reconstruct them several times over before a final end point is determined. Memories are similar in the sense that, over time, smaller details fade away and disappear, while other details may remain assertive and vivid. In my most recent works there is a sharp juxtaposition between subject matter and background in terms of brushwork and colour. The illusive nature of the image is accentuated though it's apparent disintegration and resolution.
