My paintings are an attempt to connect to the viewer at a personal level.
Our minds work in similar ways in their fundamental functions.
When we remember a visual thing, we remember a simplified non-specific version of its appearance. This memory is a generic symbol for the object, there may be details but it is still a cut down version of nature, like the spoken word, which is always generic in describing objects.
I use remembered information to make invented and abstracted pictures of people and spaces that the viewers recognise as being within their own experience.
When viewers see this version of appearances, the images feel familiar, in the way that a dream is familiar, and they feel that the work somehow includes them or echoes a memory of their own.
