China Blue’s series of paintings “Memory Networks” explore how we connect and hold on to our life experiences. Our recollections occur in fragments that arrive as flashes detached from time. Because memory is transient, “Memory Network” paintings propose a network as a method to connect and save our experiences.
Based on areas areas in the brain thought to be related to memory storage the artist shapes these spaces with shiny aluminum based globules and connects them to make stunning examples of one way to hold onto our thoughts and experiences. Modeled after neural nets by linking them and preserving them in beautiful figurative abstract images, China Blue is proposing a way to safeguard our recollections.
