One’s look into the past is often clouded by lapses in memory. Often we are left with mere fragments of personal history and the attempt to piece them together with varying levels of success. My work explores the layered complexity of the pieces that form a whole, and how the reconstruction of one’s memory is subject to distortion over time. My current work is both a personal attempt to remember my past and a broader abstraction of memory as a collection of images that both fade and interfere. The use of light and translucent material is central to my work. The additive process of the layering of images and marks allows for the subtle manipulation of depth and interaction. My process is reflective of how one works with fragmentary remains despite the challenges of incomplete and vague memories.
