I made this painting in the study of a woman who suffered from early onset dementia. She’s now in a nursing home. As she was declining and still in her home she was clipping images from magazines and other sources and taping them to door frames, doors, window frames and other wooden furniture. I was moved by her efforts to remind herself of the things that interested her.
