Making a number of paintings at once- resolutions for one painting might be found in another- a thread of narrative emerges. Unlike photos, memories, like repeatedly retold tales, distort and become exaggerated over time. Colours become more vivid, sounds brighter, smells sweeter. Images and memories combine and new worlds emerge, finished paintings idealized versions of where things began.
