Everyday encounters evoke recollections of the past without conscious effort. I draw from these involuntary memories of places and experiences, although I question the reliability of my memory. As more time passes the events get distorted and become more about perception and less about reality. Memories turn into myths and only recall chosen aspects of the past. When I’m painting I use the liberties the medium allows to dislocate objects and figures, recalling the hazy state of memories in which certain details fall into place while others fade away.
