Winter 2010- Surfaced Series

In 1901 Plato compared the perceptual events of his life to a wax block.  The block was a place where he could "stamp" all the ways he perceived the world.  Put together, these stamps would leave traces in our brain called memories.  Honestly this all started with a simple nostalgic sketch of my mother's eyes.. it wasn't until later that it progressed into a series I called "Surfaced."  It's a compilation of my childhood memories- or at least the strongest ones.. though many are incomplete and faded still.. the human mind isn't meant to keep a database of clear images for over 20 years.
