Grandma and Grandpa
Oil on canvas, 18" x 24"
On "Grandma and Granpa": "My work explores my relationship with my personal medical history. While creating this painting, I looked to my family for inspiration. I used a photograph I had taken as a reference for this peace. This photograph shows the reaction of a scene from another generation, and how these previous generations can have an effect on your life. The abstracted forms within the figures and the solid white background provide a feel of fading or loss of memory. This vast while area helps to create a much larger feel for depth throughout the overall space. All of these things help describe how fragile memories are."
