From the series "Chauvet/228 Golden Glow Drive" (2017-). Using drawings I made at ages 3, 4, and 5 as seed material, these oils are exercises in self-sampling. An  apprenticeship with a now fifty-year old  ghost residue vaguely remembered, exploring  that entity's (largely indecipherable) mythopoetic vocabulary. A whiff of time travel, a sort of dreamtime poetics. "Once you admit that time past is actually infinite, being a child gradually fades out" (Susan Howe). Samples of the "originals" below.
