Runs through 10/26/2019.

Several years ago, I took a big trip. Lured by the history and adventure of the Silk Road, I traveled solo to China and Vietnam. I researched for years, studying, planning and dreaming and I saved enough money to be away for four months. I sketched and took photos, and since returning, have made art based on my trip.

I have now been back for longer than I spent preparing for and making the journey, yet the images I made while there stay with me, my trip photos are still the basis for basically all the art I do. As memory of the trip fades, the same images keep circling back through my awareness.

“Mementos” is a collection of work comprised of recent interpretations of my trip photos, as well as composites of previous iterations. I keep coming back to the same vistas, the same memories of the trip. As I continue to work with these photos, I find new ways of approaching the same subject, and as I contemplate the work, I revisit and reinterpret my own memories of the trip.
