Memories sidestep objectivity. Their visual manifestations can be intensely personal and revealing. My work makes the fleeting essence of memory, tangible; a step in the direction of putting flesh to the bones of a narrative. The unreliable and organic nature of recall makes for a process that flirts with improvisation and results in a vibrating and tangible energy, informing the present. Anxiety, hesitation, lust, and gluttony are never a step too far in any direction of my life; and I beleive my practice exposes that.
