Language is everywhere. It takes many forms, sounds, and other ways to express itself. Language gives way to communication, from here stories are born.
My act of painting is an act of using an unwritten, ever-changing language to communicate some story. The stories I tell are not entirely personal. The language is mine but the narrative is not. The stories being told through my paintings are of diverse cultures and peoples, throughout the history of humanity. They contain dialogues of happiness and angst, humor and absurdity. The stories created are often unfinished, inconclusive, and open to interpretation. Their interpretations are not simple and easy to construct, nor are they always pleasing to hear. But they have a uniqueness and identity. They have a urge to be expressed, and I have accepted the responsibility to express them.
