The Soul is my longest running series. Begun somewhere in 2001 I attempt to document my life as seen through the filter of my memory. Nostalgia, forgetfulness, drunken nights, etc. all impact these experiences and transform them into a truth that lies somewhere closer to the heart of my life than actual cold facts.
Encompassing several different bodies of work but the focus is on a core body that was/is created via oil pastel on paper. These works are the most autobiographical of mine but not necessarily the most truthful in that they are all done from memory and those memories – as they’re filtered through the mind – are clouded with nostalgia as details are forgotten by force or time.
