A Word from the Artist: The paintings in this exhibit represent a myriad of emotions I experienced in late 2013 and early 2014—typical emotions such as joy and frustration, fear and excitement. It’s a very special kind of emotion that was foreign to me and difficult to explain. It’s as if all of my emotions are intertwined and seeking their voice through my art.
