Infinite Glimpse is part of a series of work that will be on view at The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Centeruntil August 12, 2021 as part of a group exhibition titled, “RESURGENCE”, highlighting work by SA artists who produced work during the pandemic.
“With this current series of paintings, I’m interested in capturing fleeting moments. These moments sometimes end up having more meaning than initially thought. Life is in flux, never static; there always exists a process of change. These “subjects” are isolated in a space that is devoid of life. They’re frozen in a tranquil state yet prepared to leap into existence with reckless abandon at any moment. This tension is what I attempt to capture in my painting, a subtle gedginess, an underlying tension. If change is inevitable, then things could go awry at any moment. The ephemeral moments in between always seem to linger, but there is contentment in these moments, waiting to be discovered all the time.”
