In the series revisit, an etched rectangular area in museum glass obfuscates the memory and the relationship to the image beneath. The viewer is teased by allowing a peek behind the opaque area, but not enough to reveal the full image. The slim border visible, itself reminiscent of an actual postcard, along with the three dimensional effect is just enough to let one’s own associations fill in the story. Whether at the beach or poolside, the setting is vaguely familiar, connecting us to our own past experience, evoking partially recalled memories in generic yet very personal terms.
