After 14 years of painting other people and abstract ideas, my latest series of paintings are autobiographical, illustration-based pieces exploring my past. They were painted in the last few months  with acrylics on raw, unprimed canvas. Since I recently moved to a new, larger studio, I now have the space to paint on a large scale and it has been liberating. These paintings depict memories of distinct moments of my life the way I remember them when I think about them today. The passage of time has altered the way the actual moments appear in my memory and turned them into scenes frozen in time - snapshots in my mind. These works seek to capture each memory at its most intense moment, because such moments have come to define the emotionally charged nature of my life.
