Reminiscence, 2020

Acrylic and cheesecloth on canvas

To me, home is where everything is familiar.

When I am at home, every object and every room have several memories attached to them. These memories are almost repetitive, but in a comforting way.

I chose to use cheese cloth because I like the soft but elevated texture it creates when twisted and pressed onto a canvas. The spiraling lines represent the thought process that my mind goes through when I am at home. The warm tones of the spiral show that these happy memories circle through my mind over and over again and can drown out any negative thoughts.
