About Sarina Villareal

Using myself as something of a neuro-scientific experiment, I explore the effects of short term memory loss and Interference Theory in my paintings.

After studying my subjects - botanical and figurative – I recreate them without visual reference. Breaking apart the subject’s morphology and physiology, I re-composed the subject having worked solely from recollection. The result is a reconstructed translation of my subject affected by both memory deterioration and the transfer effects of new learned material.
