Imagined Homelands

 

 

“Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.”

               -Marcel Proust               

 

 

 “Imagined Homelands” is a collection of Mono and poly chromatic oil and acrylic paintings inspired by a trip to the isolated communities of Gaultois and McCallum, Newfoundland in the fall of 2013.  I developed this exhibition in the months following the trip as I reflected on the definition of nostalgia and its relationship to our ideas of the past, present and future.  

 

Nostalgia is defined as the longing to return home, where the concept of home is not a physical place but a different time.  As the needs of our present existence change, it is possible to alter the perceptions of our past, ultimately directing the realities of our future. 

 

This collection of paintings is meant to stimulate the creative thinking we utilize in surviving displacement from the familiar, Imagined Homelands.
