The ‘Memoirs’ were conceived in early winter of 2012. I spent buckets of paint trying to create the feeling that I wanted, until I finally gave in and the paintings took their final form. Afterwards, I came close to destroying them few times as I didn't believe they were any good. It wasn't until later that I saw them as true reflection of how I felt at the time. Later I was able to see the influence of Clyfford Still (an artist I hugely admire) in these paintings and I became truly fond of them both. They were chosen by Saatchi guest curator to feature in an online collection. Furthermore, Memoirs I was shown as part of the Screen Project at the Saatchi Gallery, London.
