This painting is about plurality, or as Kundera would say it, about “the unbearable lightness of being”. It is a painting about the passing of time and our inability to remain, to not morph, to not change, age, fall, or be displaced. It is about transience and our inability to always be beautiful. Inside and out. This is a painting about desire
My paintings are inspired by memory, sourced images, and contemporary life in places I have lived. Images of family, ancestors, and ghosts accompany a present that honors and wants to learn. Perceptions toward life rituals such as marriage, patriarchy, and religion, which have changed over time with the pursuit of equality, and an infinite desire to create a prosperous present and future for the individual and the family. These themes that traffic in the everyday, magical realism, and a history of migration, have inspired a body of work that speaks of what life is made of: memories, day dreams, work, love, loss, and family.
