A page of Personal History

This image was part of a recent show of my new work in Toronto called "Collective Memory" The work exhibited the collections of things which comprise my sense of memory and personal historical reference. The images are densely packed with deeply personal meaning, certainly charges of narcissism or self-indulgence can be leveled, but I think these images are captivating and draw the viewer in, sharing in the experience.

Images of my father's shoes have been laid directly across the photograph, painted in a kind of 'a la prima' style.
