After personal loss, I have been interested in humanity’s ability to absorb great adversity and build towards the future. Often this can encompass looking inward and identifying what must change personally. This series of paintings is designed to convey the many emotions felt during this internal transformation. It is fascinating that when faced with adversity our natural response is to withdraw, hide or deny. When reaching out and faxing these emotions, it is evident we all have the capacity to experience personal growth and progress.
