Fulcrum Gallery, Tacoma, WA
After observing an exposed, eroding hillside near my painting studio, I imagined the multitudes of memories compressed within each layer of dirt. Like minerals captured within each layer, memories collect in our brains and are compacted together as one aggregated life experience.
The compositions for “Slice” are entombed between sheets of glass, like a brain specimen upon a microscope slide. The random photographs embedded among the painted stratum suggest vivid memories buried in a landfill of forgotten experience.
