AMERICAN DREAMS

These paintings are based upon fragments of memory, fragments which, over the course of time, have become distorted and dreamlike, the distinction between real and imagined events having long disappeared.

I once read an interview in which Gabriel Garcia-Marquez described the way his grandmother would tell stories. She told things that sounded supernatural and fantastic, but she made them believable by telling the stories in great detail and without changing the expression on her face. That's pretty much how I approached this work.
