Myth, Memory and metamorphosis

by Alan Todd

It is in our nature to create stories from the input of sensory information available to us. Some narratives are written down, some are carried by word of mouth and some exist only as ideas. This series of paintings is both myth and memory. My recollections of a river are clouded, faulty and selective with suggestions of wood, water and an existence long faded into history. The myth I am creating here is ephemeral in that the river and its history undergoes continual metamorphosis leaving only faint and increasingly indecipherable traces.
