Hello wonderful people.
I have been going back and forth about sharing my new work for months. It seems the return to normalcy has been at a different pace for everyone and some days I feel so out of step with the rhythm of the world. While I have much to be grateful for, this year has been a steady stream of both loss and gains, production delays, and being pushed to the point of surrender. There is palpable shift in the landscape. Some good, some bad. Knowing there’s so much out of my control, I have taken to a journey of acceptance and letting go to keep my peace.
Meanwhile, in the studio, I have made a concerted effort to find a new groove based on a new understanding of life, death, and the world around me. It was as if a part of me had to fully come to a rest in order for something new to be born.
And so after a devastating loss, securing my own apartment in NYC, helping my family relocate to Texas, getting Covid, surviving Covid, then remodeling part of the Brooklyn studio, I began quietly working out something personal and meaningful that serves as a springboard towards a completely new me.
Deep reflections aside, here’s a few photos that sum things up since the last update.
