Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Gouache, Ink, Watercolor on Paper, Plastic.

I’ve always been interested in the role that photography plays in how we construct our memories and how that is changing with social media. There has always been an element of fiction in our memories but with the contemporary need to create an online identity, how is that construction going to affect the way we remember?

These online images are so ephemeral and impermanent, and I enjoy capturing that in my paintings. By painting these images, I’m able to capture that ‘just out of reach’ feeling of memories, where some details remain sharp, yet others blur and disappear.

This creek is near the house I grew up in. I tried to capture it over Thanksgiving. Knowing that I'll probably not get to spend much more time since my mother is going to sell the house.
