Proposal: Not A Memory

Not A Memory I paint on canvas fake memories of lives I have never lived, making those moments that have never existed my own. I do, recreate a narrative of unseen moments. What is real, what have we seen, what do we document? All questions around the current use of the image and the information. I rewind to those years where the footprint of our existence was not tracked 24/7 , modify my own history and create new realities that are not memories.IMG_0969
