My paintings deal with the human memory and its increasing interaction with digital technology. I am trying to explore the question of whether we are becoming over reliant on technology for capturing memories. Is our constant taking of photos, selfies and videos stopping us from experiencing events in the moment? Are the images we take and upload replacing what we see through our own eyes? Yet, on the other hand, can technology help us remember more, especially with an ever aging population and the problems caused by such diseases as dementia.
