Artist Statement

AGAPE is a meditation on interdependence. As my father often recites, “No man is an island, entire of itself.” These past few months have represented a personal moment of deep introspection and revelations on the things that matter most. To accurately capture that in an image is a lifelong quest, but solemn gestures and tender moments like these offer a useful language on what it means to be together but apart right now.
