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.
