This body of work aims to provoke a specific memory—high school. Feelings can change and, in hindsight, feel exaggerated. The Hilroy lined paper is reminiscent of high school, when things felt bigger than they really were; when we were stuck in this limbo between growing up and holding onto childhood; when we had a naive idea of love; when we would scribble and write notes rather than pay attention in class. It is such a simple act, but the memories we each hold behind this act are highly complex and unique to our own experience.
ANDY VAN DINH graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He celebrates the mundane activities that govern the way we, as human beings, actively choose (or do not choose) to imagine, to love, to lose and to forget.
