"Paintings on subway tickets. This project began in fall 2004. Each painting is the result of a subway ride, the reflection of a chance encounter. I wanted to remember all the anonymous faces and gazes of the people I share my journey with, so every day I paint the portrait of a fellow passenger on a ticket – bound by the constraints of colour, size, movement and time. I try to retain the memory of all those I have come across but, over time, the memory fades and all that is left behind is the portrait."
