The Risen

The Risen

 

    
   My work explores the question of how to reconcile harsh sociopolitical realities with a utopian vision of a just, peaceful, and hopeful society.
    
   My intention is to hold these realities of life up to the light of imagination , and by doing so, transcend hopelessness and find a glimmer of optimism in unfortunate and tragic situations.

   I see My nonobjective “dot paintings” as representative of egalitarian communities, where each dot is just as important as    another. They are truly democratic compositions. They are also explorations of color interactions. I am never quite sure how the dots will interact with each other and with the color of the background.
