“The roots of my art have always been influenced by the fact that I am an inveterate collector of all things and that I am fascinated to obsession by the process of decay.”
A Note To Self
Memories are like envelopes.
Precious things held folded in paper.
Eventually, they deteriorate, evaporate, and disappear,
but until they do, they hold the power to transport
you to another place in time.
Written words, the threads that lead you to memories.
These pieces explore the threads of my memories,
how fragile they are,
with the envelopes as little storage facilities
and those memories wafting in and out.
I’m holding them in my mind for now.
But, ultimately, they will be gone.
