We're All in This Together

We're All in This Together

We each have our own stories. Together we have history.

Our cultural and individual histories play a significant role in who we are today as members of society, family, humanity. When I paint, everything I've ever learned or experienced is in each and every canvas. In thoughts, in brush strokes, in colors, in textures. I express myself in art, revealing histories through layers of paint. Some of my paintings are narratives, many are expressive. What you see on the top layer can only exist by building on the layer below, just as all of history does not happen in a vacuum but builds upon previous events. 

Along the way, we may get to alter the outcome.

Disney's "High School Musical" may not be the most poignant movie, but the lyrics to it's popular song "We're All in This Together" resonate right now:

We're all in this together
Once we know
That we are
We're all stars
And we see that
We're all in this together
And it shows
When we stand
Hand in hand
Make our dreams come true
