Artist Reception: Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 7pm – 9pm

Paintings of the human figure are juxtaposed with found objects that are repurposed, constructed, and transformed into object-paintings. East meets west in gold-leafed surfaces surrounding meticulously painted human hands. Mudra-like, the hand gestures hint of vows, rituals, and meditations, revealing narrative and identity.
