Penas Precoces, Chile
Galería Madhaus, Santiago, Chile 2015
The archives used for this series of paintings share impulse and content. Childhood Worries can be described as a color notebook authored by the most sensitive child, a collection of unordered snapshots through which childhood becomes a world. This series of paintings represents that stage of childhood when real and imaginary planes seamlessly overlap. They assert nothing; they simply act as receptacles for nostalgia.
I asked others to provide images of themselves or their loved ones when they were children, and this exhibition is the result. Check, ask, order, sort, cut and reduce the material to create:
‘The notebook of borrowed children’
