“Cuba” documents a memory I hold dear to and a response to Peter Doig’s “abstraction of memory” in which he describes the painting process as an “act of retrieval, the refinding of a memory, discovery and reminiscence”. “Cuba” initiated as a photograph, something that the general public view as a true representation of a memory. However memory is never an objective presentation, it is an abstraction of fleeting images and mixed emotions. Combining acrylic, colored pencils and ink, “Cuba” unfolds this precious memory in mixed media. It leads viewers on the journey in a third-person point of view with the central figure.
