The Shape of Memory has a depth to it created by layers and layers of paint. That depth goes all the way back to… what? Memory is tricky. We think it’s the stories we tell ourselves but it’s actually more like snippets of this and that all mixed in together.

The Shape of Memory was a finalist in the 2016 EMSLA awards.
