These paintings probe the distortion, incompleteness and rare moments of clarity in the shadows of memory.
Each piece portrays the intrinsic struggle and selective inclusion or exclusion of details in the process of recollection. At times, sharpness occurs in the rear of the picture plane while the out of focus, obscured areas, exist in a larger scale toward the foreground and make reference to the inscrutable nature of long and short term memory.
The unpredictability of these acts of memory are expressed in these works.
