My mind confuses me of how I remember and how I feel about a place—a place that I can see and touch; a place that is in the past and a place that is in the very present. The place I am trying to remember is reconstructed as soon as I attempt to visualize it in a painting. I pick up pieces of new information and revisit my memory, going back and forth, to construct a place through painting and to do it justice.
This painting is charcoal, conte crayon, graphite, ink, and gouache on paper. It will require a frame for display.
