Memory Language

I continue to explore the interface between war, peace, memory and visual expression.

I am influenced by the characters of East Asian languages.

I see in the forms and in the rhythm of the calligraphy, fragments that I include in this new imagery.

These pastels and paintings pay homage to the characters of peace, love, friendship, home and destiny.

The addition of my spontaneous and fleeting marks are meant to only make fragments of these forms as they fade in memory.

What remains is a whisper of the sounds swirling above the vibrant color of the surface.                                                                                                                                                                       – May, 2012
