Memory plays a large part in fashioning our personalities and psychological being. Memories of past traumatic events are delivered to the present via a compulsive repetition, automatically and without control, stimulating the senses and reviving ghosts of our past. My work is ontological and I have been influenced by personal life experiences and events. Many of my personal memories are joyous and reassuring, while others are fleeting glimpses of a distant past and some are disconcerting and repetitive, delivered to consciousness, without provocation. These semblances of experience have for me become effective as agents of creativity.
