“I use my expressionistic approach to painting to tell the story of the New Yorkers I love and appreciate. It is important for me to capture my neighbors, to capture the strength, solidarity and resilience of my community and to speak to the pulse and movement of the city. I have spent recent years building community with empathetic, affirming artists and cultural workers in New York City and this work is an ode to the multiplicity and nuance of that community.”
