Concentric Longing series

The paintings in Concentric Longing are based on a series of photographs taken of my once hometown of Vancouver. In making the work, I wanted to explore the idea of how we perceive a location through the filters of memory and emotion such as nostalgia and longing. I want the paintings to evoke the idea that we can have a kind of simultaneous experience of place that reverberates with the multiplicity and mutability of our own personal history and emotional attachment.
