My work depicts moments where field workers toil and bathers immerse themselves in water: colliding with light and shadow.
As realistic images of everyday existence evoke ambiguouis situations where the human figure is both anyonymous, yet strangely familiar – powerfuly, yet marginalized.
Water carries all life. It is sacred and magical. Without doubt, water is the most important substance on Earth. My paintings pay homage to the intergration of reflections, refractions, and shadows of the anima and animus of water.
Farm Worker Series
I was drawn to portray and create a closer look at the anonymous, yet strangely familiar view of the marginalized farmworker population.
