Statement

My interest is in memory and time: how it's recorded, how we freeze time and how memories change, and in that process, become altered and something new. The memories may push back to the surface in whole stories that have been changed, or only as quick flashes of lost moments.
Using landscape or object images that signify a particular time and place, the paintings are layered and manipulated so that the initial images are changed, yet are still present.  Lines are blocked in and their abstractions become both voids and presences in the space.  The image manipulation also provides a contrast between nature or natural processes and the manmade.  Ambiguity of space and how that relates to memory and time is a major concern for me. 
Much of my work is relatively small, which forms a sense of intimacy - making the pieces memento-like: postcards, artifacts or snapshots, that tell stories of specific moments of time.
