Can You Reach That Apple?

Acrylic paint and medium, braced wood panel, 2016, 48"w x 48"h x 1.5"d

A movie about a father, his daughter and a bunch of geese; the image of a man leaning against a window frame; words that I read once—things I’ve stored away for safekeeping, for revisiting from time to time, for taking with me. An exploration of my memory, time and space. I use a process of layering paint and washes to create a pushing back and pulling forward of details. This pushing and pulling, adding and reducing, explores the tension between what happened and what we remember, between the familiar and the experienced. Between desire and reality.
