Recently my work has been focusing on the transparency of memory and how moments of our past that have been captured through photograph are just the description of a moment but not the reality of it. A fleeting gesture captured by film is just a seconds worth of information. What was happening during the immediate past and present of that period in time is unknown and ultimately considered by myself scattered moments of fiction. I utilize family photographs, past and present, to represent a seemingly significant moment in time, but use the paint to alter and describe the moment as i see it, a moment of fiction. I question the relevancy of the photographic information and attempt to reiterate through paint my beliefs in regards to the transparent quality of memory.
