Abstract: The thesis exhibition explores the use of memory and its effect on my evolution of a painting. Using the look of simplistic imagery executed on an intuitive level, I have created a body of work based on memories and daydreams of the distant and recent past. By using memory, rather than observation, as the basis for my paintings I have allowed for the spontaneous development of an image beyond the memory, without the constraints or self-imposed limitations of a model in nature such as a tangible object, figures or photographic references.
