A fragmented landscape of lost adventure and faint longing, pieced together from boyish ideas of an arcane and extraordinary world. These compositions seek to capture memory as a moving cascade of fiction and recollection, softened and worn by years of misremembering. Embedded with insignia that hint at the esoteric symbols of a forgotten culture, A Map & A Key recalls a sensitive boy’s pure and desperate creation of mythology and speaks to a quiet and insistent longing for magic amid the devastating loss that comes with growing up.
This collection was exhibited at BoxHeart Gallery in March of 2021. Images from the gallery installation can be seen here.
