Inspired by eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, these pieces reprocess estranged personal childhood memories. Energetic neon lines, vivid washes of color, and childlike imagery transport the viewer to a smoky childhood picnic, snippets of power lines, and house windows that were once seen from the backseat car rides, without a seatbelt on. The layering of different media alludes to how our accumulation of personal memories can simultaneously color and infiltrate our new experiences in time.
