Omschrijving werk

Memory does not consist of static moments frozen in the past, but rather floating images, we are constantly editing, changing and distorting. Memories of my childhood have become fragments and now I only see glimpses of a past, which has been partially reconstructed by my parents and photographs. Remembering is the resurrection of details, feelings, but also sadness in the realization that its time is past. It is recalling the yellow warmth of a summer day, the void after leaving home or the color of the shoes you wore to your grandmother’s funeral. My memories continue to live, but only within my mind and the landscape where it all happened - a farm on the faraway prairies of Iowa located in another lifetime. My past rematerializes itself in dreamy drawings, paintings, collages, poetry, letters and philosophical reflections. Each, like a diary entry – incomplete, momentary, personal and reflective. They suggest that any truth about memory and the past cannot be determined through an exercise of reason and logic, but only through intuition and perception. My work is a collection of these ever-changing fragments.
