“Layers of Memory”

I have come to regard memory – like my process of abstract painting – as never fixed, always in flux and infused by the multitude of present moments of recollection.

Memories – or the affective experiences that stimulate the memories – remain as invisible guides in my work, or perhaps are embodied within it.  Laying down images then intuitively erasing or overpainting to form new images suggests a link between creativity and memory itself.  Such a process of revising previous events, renders memory as active and always partially elusive.
