Lot Essay

“My paintings talk of relationships: How bodies come together. How they touch. How they separate. How they live together, in harmony and disharmony … My paintings want to tell stories that are an abstracted equivalent of how the world of human relationships is made and unmade. How it is possible to evolve as a human being in this.”
