Powers Headshot


I have always been interested in the role that photography plays in how we construct our memories and how that is changing with social media. There has always been an element of fiction in our memories. But with the contemporary need to create an online identity, how is that construction going to affect the way we remember things? These online images are so ephemeral and impermanent, and I enjoy capturing that in my paintings. By painting these images, I’m able to capture that ‘just-out-of-reach’ feeling of memories, where some details remain sharp, yet others blur and disappear.
