From the artist:
"The inspiration for this show is a sort of mix of a few things. I spent most of my time during quarantine walking on average from four to six miles a day throughout the neighborhoods in addition to spending a weekend a month camping in Joshua Tree. I moved twice during the past year, which provided me with so many new streets and neighborhoods to walk through. These walks and camping trips helped bring me comfort and solace in a very trying and isolating time; finding peace in the stillness and emptiness of the streets and vast desert. The white animals have been in my dreams since I was a child, acting as a benevolent presence that has always been there holding some kind of space for me, leading into the title "Tiny Vessels." A vessel is a hollow container meant to be filled with something, the meaning of which being ambiguous, and I feel that these places and animals offer that to me. The color palette is inspired by the desert, and the gentle moments found deep within the golden and blue hour alike."

"The process of creating this body of work has been rough, but overall a very good learning experience and step forward in my art career. Finding energy to paint after working a full time day job is a challenge in itself, on top of that I've been learning a new medium. This has really helped in developing a greater self discipline. Setting daily goals, having self appointed deadlines, and pushing myself past a barrier of feeling exhausted/uninspired and finding inspiration."
