Canopy of Dreams

Gallery 825, Los Angeles

October 30 - December 3, 2021


Artist Statement: Canopy of Dreams is inspired by my formative years when I lived in the Bahamas. The works are painted on found printed textile which I've adapted as a ground in lieu of canvas. In these formal compositional interventions, my abstract painted forms interact with the botanical motifs present in the background. Primarily abstract with thematic representational elements, the series refers to lost or threatened settings like the lush, canopied rainforests of the sub-tropics. In these paintings, I symbolically pay homage to the beauty of the natural world, while alluding to humanity’s destructive impact on it.
