Artist Statement

A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to visit the Middle East with my parents. The stark beauty was inspiring. But, the most incomprehensible thing to me was the amount of history in that part of the world. I let my imagination run wild with this painting of the Red Sea and imagined Moses leading the Israelites to freedom. I chose a poured acrylic painting for this because it was fluid and really showcased the water. I used a torch to bring in the cells and make it look like water bubbles. Mostly, however, it reminds me of the memories of a piece of history I made with my parents before it was too late.
