Memory Networks by China Blue
March 4-Jule 25, 2016
Albert Medical School, Providence, RI
Memory Networks are paintings that explore how we connect and hold on to our life experiences. Our recollections occur in fragments that arrive as flashes detached from time. These paintings are based on the voids in the brain created by Alzheimer’s. The artist fills the empty spaces with aluminum based paint designing shiny globules and connects them to make stunning examples of one way to hold onto our thoughts and experiences. The works are modeled after neural nets by linking them and preserving them in beautiful figurative abstract images and propose a way to safe guarding our recollections.
