My work explores the malleable nature of memory formation and recall, presenting dubious narratives characterized by omission, distortion, and hyperbole.  Perception and remembrance are always imperfect – our every moment subject to omission as well as misinterpretation and embellishment by imagination and emotion. In turn, each subsequent recalling of an experience is subject to repression, convolution, and dissipation. Some memories become further permuted by conflation, separate remembrances morphing together like beads of moisture on glass.  As our very identities are tangled up in past experience, I am fascinated by the notion of the gaps left by these absences of information, these holes within the structure of our past and present lives, these half-imagined pasts that become layered among the façade of one’s current self.
