The envelopes in my paintings are old and worn. Some have been repeatedly folded, others stashed out of sight for years. Some offer nostalgic reminders of things that no longer exist; others are from bygone friends. They represent relationships that were maintained across distances and referential dialogues extending through many years.
These images are symbols of an invisible string that binds us to each other. In old letters we find loved ones, parents, old friends, and our old selves.
These images suggest the symbiotic relationship between our past and our present, and present life not as then vs now, but rather, as inescapable circles of time and memory and the antithesis of our digital society.
