Things that appear before our eyes change from one moment to the next. Their existence seems fleeting. Yet, there is an unwavering strength hidden in the aspects that continue to change and not break in the never ending flow of time. The long unbroken stream of life appears both ephemeral and strong to my eyes.

Memory consists of accumulations of layers upon layers of transparent membranous images of landscape and phenomena that appear before our eyes. From instant to instant, we take in the transformations of landscape and the landscape takes us in. The exchange is synchronous and becomes a source of great energy.

My intention is to pull together the ephemeral memories of beauty, to encapsulate and embody them in my art, leaving them behind for others to enjoy in the future.
