An Internal Rumour


Evocations of childhood's memories and dreams, and how the two are frequently melded, distilled to their emotional trace element. Some are as vivid as daylight, others opaque and diaphanous as twilight's shadows.


Poet/philosopher George Santayana's quote, titling this series, perfectly describes memory's ambiguity, in which, "the picture we frame of the past grows every day less similar to the original experience."


Through the prism of a childhood that sensed magic and possibility beyond the green suburbs, these works also serve as portraits of awkward adolescence and its longing for embrace and inclusion.
