From the Fractured Memories series, this painting is called Evening Stroll. When we were living with my parents to help my mom take care of my dad, we occasionally went to the park to stroll. The photo is me and my dad walking the way we have to walk now: linking arms or holding hands to make sure he doesn’t wander in front of a car or get lost. At this point, we’re really past the strolling phase as he moves at a snails pace and is harder to guide, but when we do walk around his home or take him to Bodo’s, this is how we walk. The fracturing of the picture represents the fracturing of Dad’s memories and perception of the world around him. The drippings represent the possible tau proteins and tangles that might be causing the fracturing.
