This series draws inspiration from fading memories, "Moments in Time," and personal narratives. The artwork is taken from old photos of Fitch's family, which will include four generations. The theme of the painting deals with memories. Each painting is distorted in some way to show the inaccuracy of our memories. Memories are reconstructions of reality, filtered through people’s minds. They are not perfect snapshots of events. When we look back at old photos, we reinterpret them. Our minds have a different way of processing things from the past. Sometimes memories evoke more emotions than the moment it happened. The photo captures a historical documentation of a moment in time. It does not tell the whole story and it doesn’t show what is truly going on in the character’s life. One can see what the person is doing and what they looked like, but not what they were thinking or feeling.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through May 11.
