What is the identity of a place? Where does a place cease to be solely itself? Where does one place end and another begin? What would an individual’s place memories look like if we could see them? How do we build connections between one place and another? These questions, along with a continuing reexamination of place related genres, have occupied my artistic production since a four week Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts residency in April 2018.
Our processed memories of places is a composite, blending both visual and emotional material and connecting one place to another, nearby or distant. Its mental images combine the detailed and the abstracted. So the works here are all layered, the digital equivalent of multiple exposures but with the precision and control that only digital tools can provide.
