Memories vague and uncertain, part forgotten, fragmented , contaminated, not real ; likened to the erosion of landscape,a slow deterioration over time.
I use the genre of landscape to portray this happening , the resulting experimental paintings create the essence of another space , something almost lost, familiar yet elusive, indefinite but identifiable, like pareidolia , slipping between reality and fantasy.
