"Burning Memories was created in the beginning of the year for my solo show called “Neighborhood” at Trifecta gallery in Las Vegas. Every piece that was created for "Neighborhood" is part of a main storyline. As we grow up, we move out, living in different houses, neighborhoods, cities or countries, but the memories of the home we grew up in and the friends we made along the way stays with us.
Every piece from "Neighborhood" is based on friends of mine. In every painting there is a story that is told based on their lives. Some of it is part truth, some is part fiction. What was fun about creating the pieces for that show was that some of the pieces interact with each other. I like to tell stories, set a mood, leave clues to leave the interpretation to the viewers.
As for "Burning Memories", I feel it's the most dramatic painting of the whole show. For me, that piece is about abandon, losing someone, a tough break up or losing everything you had left. That's my version, but someone can see a party that ended up badly or just a guy with a dark past that has his house on fire." - Edith Lebeau
