A continuation of my interest in the archival quality of paint and the documentation of the hand, these four works attempt to address the processes of human memory, and perhaps more directly, it’s one plague: forgetfulness. In each painting, the original composition has been scraped from the surface of the canvas, mixing it’s pigments, before sparingly reapplying the scraped paint with slightly bent or skewed tools that leave behind small glimpses of the original painting amidst the new work. The paintings, much like human beings have become a product of their prior selves, but lack the power to do more than hint at who or what their prior self may have been.
