Solo show of paintings undertaken between May 2018 and may 2019 in Arnolfini gallery , Bristol, research studio exploring Meaning , narrative and memory: . Searching for Meaning and a Sense of Place. Topography is an essential definer of natural and manmade places-the genius loci. Although the three physical dimensions lock us into a place , the addition of time and information enable us to develop meaning: • creating new associations • allowing a new understanding Making marks help us explore the roots of our being and enables new layers of meaning. Narrative and Memory: Narrative is perfected by retelling to develop new layers of understanding. Memory works this way—it is only what you choose it to be: It is a truth wrapped up layers of emotion and self-deception: This is where art lies.
