Acrylic on leather, 2016, 8"w x 10"h x 2”d
My paintings are emotional and psychological studies of personal narratives created through the recollection of intimate memory. I began this series by extracting images and text from an old journal, noted during times of rapture, growth, vulnerability and loss. Through reconsideration of these past journal entries, I select imagery that I feel a strong emotional connection to. I further modify this imagery into simplified temporal fragments, integrating figurative elements to evoke ideas of personhood, examination of the self and personal identity.
