I have been drawn to images that repeatedly manifest themselves throughout history and geography. For years, I have fixated obsessively on remembered images of the sea, in search of the painting of the place that everyone would remember. Perhaps, simplifying an image by reducing it to only its most essential shapes, colors and composition, would ensure each individual witnessed just enough information to catalyze the process of filling in a complete picture. Focusing on the mechanism of memory, I perform an abstracted analogue of the act of recollection by exploring how memory reduces the features of a landscape to their most basic elements and how these simplified elements act as a stimulus for recalling places both visited and imagined. Approximately 400 works are a part of the ongoing series Untitled Marine Vistas and its variants.
