‘Indelible’ was created as an ode to my 2007 painting ‘Difficult Tale’ (below), which was taken from our gallery earlier this year. I chose to anchor this already composite tree-form as a mirror image in an imagined landscape, comprised of fragments of earlier paintings and my photo journals. So much of my work is based on document and the reconstruction of memory, that the process of resurrecting and replanting this lost element generated a strange, real-time looping, echoing and galvanizing of my own narrative with the core themes that I explore.
