Lepidoptera Recordatio is an intimate collection of forty new works which channel my yearning to preserve the fragility of memory through the loving act of creation. This collection revels in the human compulsion to analyze and re-analyze the string of memories and emotions which compound to form the essence of life. Steeped in Victorian era sentimentality and overburdened with sugary romanticism these alabaster skinned ancestors, painstakingly preserved butterflies and collections of fetishistic dolls exist to remind the viewer that without memory and reverence for the past we may indeed lose our souls to a soulless age.
