The I remember series began around 2013 and is ongoing. These paintings become 'memory palaces". For this series the format is limited to 12" x 9" panels. Specific objects, or text, is included on the back (verso) of the painting. Often these paintings have been exhibited using hinges allowing the viewer to turn the painting to see/read their backs.
