I deconstruct family photos into abstract and figurative elements and make them into collages on my easel. I freeze time and revive it with a new meaning in the painting. With the emphasis on the abstract elements and patterns I suspend time, giving the represented moment a timeless presence. In a way, I illustrate and paint my memories and their photographic portrayals; I create a time bubble where imagination and instinctive perception get trapped in. My beaming palette illuminates these scenes of constructed memories. I choose to paint with vivid colours so to create the necessary tension between memory and its new life. This show’s paintings were created between 2012 and 2015.
