“I have produced a group of paintings that reflect on memory and its after-image. Some are inspired by childhood memories of traveling back and forth along Toronto area highways during the 1970’s. Always moving forward, but never arriving at a comfortable place. Concurrently, I’m thinking about the passage of time; of my childhood, and my own children’s childhood, up to the present day. Continuously sliding along these timelines, seemingly back and forth, I represent the quieter aspects of life that are often forgotten. “ ktd 2015
