Exhibit continues to July 21
My work examines the relationships between people and cities by responding to constant change, reconstruction and restoration in the urban landscape. Decay, erasure, covering, revealing and rebuilding are part of my painting practice. I see my process of covering as a metaphor for forgetting and suppressing the past. The process of revealing and sanding the surface alludes to a process of remembering and reconciling historic events. Places are overlaid with multiple histories, layers of paint cover and obscure but each coat is also informed by the previous layer.
