Each mosaic work in the exhibition Recollections: An Imperfect Schematic is not a suspension of one moment in time, but the accumulation of moments within one piece, a map of one's anamnesis- which are the recollections or remembrances of the past; reminiscences. One by one, layers of experience are added – none immune to disturbance - impressions are dug out, pushed in, reworked, excavated, buried, re-remembered; scratched out and overwritten, resulting in a palimpsest of memories.
