The Umbrella Art Center, Concord MA. - April 5th - 23rd, 2023.

Nature is full of reflections produced by light, water and rocks. Often it is the quality of light on a surface, of a saturated color, or the whispers of a breeze that invite moments of personal reflection.

Art, often alluded to as a universal language, can serve as a bridge between the harsh reality of climate change and the emotions we need to feel in order to act. How has this crisis influenced the way we relate to the natural world? When we tune our senses to our local ecosystem, what can we learn? - TUAC

I conceptualize this work imagining a moment before a melting glacier. Global warming is a fact and according to the UNESCO report, many glaciers in World Heritage Sites will disappear by 2050.

Change is in the Air - Earth Month Exhibition

Painting of The Sentinel

February 15 - April 26, 2021 Change is in the Air - Earth Month Exhibition

"The Umbrella Art Center is delighted to present the results of regional artists for this year's Earth Month Exhibition - and they responded brilliantly in so many different media, styles and genres it's...well, breath-taking! Air contains two things necessary to life: carbon dioxide and oxygen. In photosynthesis, green plants take carbon-dioxide and water and use the sun’s energy to make sugar and release oxygen. In respiration, sugars and oxygen from the air turn to carbon dioxide, water, and energy. Without air, whether by drowning, respiratory failure, or persistent oppression, we cannot live..."

The Rockefeller Center Flag Project

Formation / Deformation - acrylic and oil pen on canvas paper
"The Flag Project helped us usher in a new era of togetherness and human connection amidst a difficult time. We’re proud to fly these beautiful works of art for all to see, in the heart of New York" - Rockefeller Center. Open to the public from August 1 - 16, 2020.

Artist Statement:

I started this self-exploration project as a complete change from my early artworks which are well defined as surreal.

These lines are how I imagine my life now for what remains: simple, easy to walk and in harmony.

This image is one of 15 pieces of a wall installation called "Formation / Deformation".

During this process, I was immersed in happiness; being able to be more connected to my inner spirit, the center of my own universe.

These are purely observations. With these emotional components, I was dealing with my feelings in seeing the world today.

Then I realized that everything is connected; the green is the environment, the blue is the ocean and the clean sky, the purple is tranquility, the gold is possession and so on.

Society is constantly changing and so is our planet. We are exhausted and suffering and it is our responsibility to awaken our consciousness and become better citizens of the universe.

The flag design is 8 x 5 ft. and will be one of the 192 flagpoles that surround The Rink at The Rockefeller Center.

“The Angel Guest” - handmade ceramic, glaze, repurposed fur, freshwater pearl and vintage metal flower. 8” H x 7” W x 4” D - 2019

Art Statement: This project makes reference to the climate crisis that is affecting the Planet today. I intend to highlight the fragility of the fauna and flora and I invite the audience to reflect on the importance of our environment.

I believe: Reduce - Repurpose - Recycle are the more viable initiative to take in our daily lives.

During my stay in Berlin for the past four years, my work focused on environmental topics with mixed media and recycled materials.
