The pieces in the series, Distillations of Human History, are oil paintings made with waste stream pigments foraged from specific human events and the places they occurred. I consider them collaborations with place and time, and consequently with those who were there. They are a part of our human lineage. They are visual stories, remembrances, requiems.
