Artist Statement:

Being human during a time lacking humanity

"We are simple human beings. We all have feelings. Yes, feelings, so why do we fight? Can we be kind and care and allow love to be what fills the air rather than spite? On some level, if we see every sister and brother as a divine creation, how can we not respect each other's sanctity, or want to contribute to the betterment of everyone with our creations and contributions? Our eyes, ears, hearts, and souls are open. Being 'Human' should be obvious - no need to discriminate, constantly hate with the blood of red - a need to say that humanity is not lost and that our condition can be changed. We can recover and be reborn if love is not over. Learn once again to be human. In this show, every mark we make was created by one hand--our hand--and the finished product would live and breathe as part of a world in which we all are tenants of a shared space."
