Sycamore St., Santa Ana, CA 92701, during the Santa Ana Art Walk.

 

Robin Repp’s work Selective Memory offers the viewer a time traveler’s glance into the private lives of a mid-century California family. Originally shot on Super 8mm film in 1959-1966, these photographic images are Repp's own very personal memories, sometimes chaotic, lifted and revisited as a moment in time. Faded, fuzzy and blurred, we are there for intimate scenes and family events, enlarged to abstraction and distortions in a print. Unreliable memory gives way to sometimes barely recognizable images of a 55 Ford Station Wagon, a classic wooden power boat on Newport Bay, Mouseketeer Roy signing a cartoon at Disneyland and new outfits on Christmas morning.  Like a personal Zapruder film, viewed over and over again, Repp stops on those frames for just a brief glimpse of the past.
