My work is a process of remembering the act of remembering, imperfectly and incompletely. It’s about seeing most of the picture, but not all of it, using realism to obsess over details while large areas are covered or obscured. I strive to compile a personal history signified by the ephemera of everyday life, pop culture, and nostalgia for nature. It is, at best, a fragmented record, a pseudo-science, and an impossible experiment.
