As hard as we try to forget our childhood, the human memory, once triggered, can overpower our best efforts. For example, some jerk in your office decides to watch the Lite-Brite commercial on YouTube and you suddenly have a flashback: 6-year-old you wearing knee-high tube socks and a C-3PO T-shirt spinning around in circles while Dad watches football. You trip over your Lite-Brite and knock over a full can of Pabst on the lime-green carpet. Yup, you got the belt for that one. It stings just thinking about it.
In the Artists Studio: The Paintings of Jeffrey Gold is an exhibit of work thats strangely cathartic for those suffering from nagging childhood memories. The best example is a work that depicts a class photo, model airplane, and a handful of school pencils atop a mediocre report card. Like it or not, these realistic paintings, which carefully display arranged childhood objects, will definitely help you revisit those simpler times.
