"Now having a multitude of experiences within my lifetime through studies, travel and extraordinary mentorship, I have realized as a culture we are still chained to the past indiscretions. With all of this modernity, I am having the same feelings of invisibility and inequalities of my parents' parents. Technological booms, as futuristic as it sounds, have only continued to widen the gap between the haves and have-nots. This print works from the center out. It starts with the cosmos. Some might think of it as heaven. In essence the beauty of our origin. The figure in all of its manifestations emanating from the light. We remained chained to a flawed system. I wanted this print to look visually appealing through color and form. Upon deeper investigation, the eye will travel to the subtle symbols of society badly in need of repair."
