Comment

Thanks to the support of many individuals, I continue to make work and express my ideas today. I want to continue making art in the same way that I continue to breathe. And in being seen by many others, I hope that my work will also begin breathing of its own accord. I’m very pleased to have been selected as a finalist for the Nissan Art Award. I’m looking forward to many new encounters through my artwork in the summer of 2020.
