[ Artist Note ]

Each day, we experience new and unprecedented situations. And each day, these new situations are stored away in our memory banks, where they begin to take on a life of their own. They begin a journey through our consciousness, and these journeys form a web of myriad tales, which may be shaped further by new situations that we encounter. Memories that ought to be accurate may be faulty, and even altogether false. These phenomena testify to the bizarre and mysterious nature of memory. Our memories of times past, what( we are sure )happened when and where, are actually memories of internal “ times, ” which are reformulated by the passage of time and stimuli from the surrounding environment. Thoughts like these bring me back to the days of my childhood. Yet when I recall my childhood days, I am not returning to a past time, but creating a new time.
