Delighted to participate in this show with many talented artists from around the world - will include work from my Monologue Series.
Artist statement for Monologue: "Water leaves marks on the paper like a memory that can’t be erased or obliterated, inadvertent yet unforgettable - all kinds of chance encounters conflicting and blending. The wanton flowing of the water would seek to drown out all detail, features and colors becoming blurred. And where color was not applied, they appear all the more dazzling, formed of rough particles of black and white. My subjects emerged without names, race, identity or background, stubbornly existing - calling out - up until the moment of their discovery. They became the solitary protagonists and I became the attendant of their intimate monologues, sharing with me their secrets."
