Because memories haunt us as visual images I am exploring memories through my photographic images. The events from the past take on new life and interpretation as our memories distort and fade over time. Yet they still remain in a state of flux. In the Mining Memories Series, environments move and change while retaining details of the events that inspired them. Translucent imagery on glass and silk emulate the transient, multi-layered quality of memories. I invite people to step into each space and experience the fleeting and disorganized realm of memories to discover and recover a little gem from their own histories.
