These paintings are explorations of memories created by various stimuli; sometimes visual, sometimes imaginary, sometimes taste, sometimes a combination.
Memories lost, experiences forgotten, can suddenly come to life while making a painting. Found again.
The course of making a painting is full of surprises, wrong turns, blind alleys, and U-turns and the best of it can get lost. Sometimes scraping reveals something new and promising, the hidden painting underneath is found again.
Just as often the work is easily buried again and again and only after many new starts it becomes something entirely different and new from what was expected yet resolved. Found.
