Art is a way of making sense of the world. These days we are assaulted by a vortex of images depicting national and global crises, from geopolitics to climate change to the economics of people on the move. Places disappear, borders appear. How do we understand it?

My current painting series is titled MIGRANTS. It is an idiosyncratic meditation about people on the move, their psyches fragmented, their bodies adrift.

We all have been or will be migrants. The migratory impulse is in our evolution, our DNA. Empathizing with migrants moves us toward responsibility and healing the body, mind, and spirit.
