Artist Statement

“The reality of these events does not consist in the fact that they occurred but that first of all, they were remembered, and, second, that they are capable of finding a place in a chronologically ordered sequence.” H. White (1980)

We are susceptible to the effects of signifiers even at a young age. My fascination lies with the faculties of the brain and the way in which we catalogue our memories. The visual history of our memories and our processes of recognition are theories at the core of the content of my work.
