Something that intrigues me about our memories is that we can vividly remember a specific instant, but then other memories, even from the same time period as the vivid memory, can be hazy. That idea is what I am exploring with this piece. This painting shows the Pineapple Fountain in Charleston, SC. I spent two full summers in Charleston during college and some of my most vivid recollections are from that time. But then when I have reminisced with friends who were also there, they can remember things I do not. Or remember them in a different way. I know some of the “forgetfulness” is because our brains can only hold so much information, but sometimes I wonder if I do not remember some things because I don’t want to remember. But then at the same time, some of the vivid memories are ones I wish I could forget.
