My work explores the politics of daily life and transnational imaginaries of the diaspora. By embracing diverse methods, materials, and inquiries, I survey liminal spaces of figuration and abstraction. Enmeshed in entropic dynamism, systolic and diastolic rhythms of translucent, colorful glissades and patinas of oil paints allow moments of invention and reflection. Ruminating on past and present mythologies and histories, my work engages with alternative narratives to consider human conditions beyond the paradox of culture, language, imagery, and memory.
