My artistic practice for the last few years has been exploring impressions left from memories, how some stay bright and precious but others fade away to splashes of color, a word or a smell.
The Aerial View Series is my interpretation of the most remembered moments from family trips as a child- the views out of the plane window. The farmland in the mid-west zooming by with all these wonderful patterns, the Colorado Rocky Mountains getting tinier and tinier and the forest bisected with roads and towns. Many of the actual trips are fuzzy, much like I’m remembering someone else’s description, rather than my own experiences. Yet, to this day, the land passing underneath me is still bright in my mind’s eye. The Aerial View series is an exploration of these remembered landscapes.
