Among the Narcissi

 

These are personal paintings. They are charged with the nostalgia of early family photographs that have always been a substitute for the first 4 years of my life preceding my parents’ protracted and messy transcontinental divorce. That is to say, I have no memories attached to these photographs, or the era they illustrate. What they are really “about” is the lifetime activity of making one’s own narratives —something one is subconsciously doing all the time, especially in relationship to one’s parents. So of course, I have taken liberties with my family photographs, and have told the only truths and narratives I “know.”
