Buried Memories I (West Bldg. Exhibition)

The piece I enjoyed the most in the exhibition around the West Building was "Buried Memories I" by Allison Snopek. It is a beautiful oil painting on canvas with colors that are absolutely incredible and compliment each other nicely. The painting itself reminds me of the interior of a cave and my interpretation is that you bury some memories in the back of your mind so they are unseen or unremembered much like a cave is underground so it is unseen. Overtime, the buried memories keep adding up on top of each other like the growth in caves builds up on itself over time. I like how it's blurry or unclear in some areas like memories can sometimes be hazy.
