An ongoing series of
2020— Present

Dementia is an ongoing series of paintings about the loss of my parents. This series is a celebration of loss and decay, of loving bonds between people and families, of the time that lingers and adds character to lovingly memories. The paintings in this series are carriers of time and are embedied with moments of lives lived. ︎︎︎
Repetitions and endurance are crucial elements. But living with dementia also involves letting go of actions, relationships, and objects that are not — or are no longer — beneficial, constructive, or worth sustaining in relation to one’s life’s journey. The forget-me-not flower repeats, Irish lace tumbles, sight and hearing fade.︎
