WISH YOU WERE HERE is my newest series of paintings. They include images of impossible encounters and of settings that blend my dreams and memories in order to manifest a new reality that dares to be both nostalgic and full of enthusiasm for the future.

 

The presence of camera phones or the suggestion of photography reinforces this notion of shared memories and the desire to connect with people who aren’t with us.

 

The juxtaposition of old world art with new world technology also reflects a joyful relationship between the past and present as well as the consistency of the need to create and preserve a beautiful sense of place and self.
