In my last year of study, my thesis covered the relevance of the digital medium and the question of whether it could eventually take over the mediums of the past. It seems fitting that I explore these themes and ideas currently, merging the traditional oil painting with digital elements.

Memory is a theme that keeps recurring in my work. Every moment is gone in the blink of an eye, creating a memory. Most of our thinking presides in our memories of the past. Given all the imagery and experiences of others we interpret from screens, it also plays into the question of what truly are our own memories and what are fabricated artifacts of computational images. This series seeks to juxtapose those two paradigms, one our direct experience and the other our virtual experience. One could argue our own subjective reality is a complete fabrication in of itself.

Memories are always changing, coalescing like clouds only to dissipate and re-emerge.
