About the Artwork

This painting positively reframes a personal moment of connection as a metaphor for the broader human condition. Exploring genuine, supportive relationships, I consider the sensation of goodwill that holds people together across boundaries of many types. I search for meaning using multiple layers and a collage aesthetic - combining symbolic elements and unique processes. I have merged the figures to emphasize their shared humanity and reduce barriers between the figures and their environment. I symbolically replace distance with closeness, vulnerability with strength, and transience with permanence. Painting empowers me to share wonder and symbolically bridge vast distances to feel connected to my roots and family.

Paintings focus on genuine, supportive relationships and the goodwill that holds people together. They combine real experienced moments and sensations with the imaginary, reframing life's journey to be hopeful and inclusive. Permeable abstracted figures merge with each other and their distinct environment, becoming a metaphor for the wider human condition.
