News – Upcoming Group Show
I feel frustrated with working 6-7 days a week at the moment.
I’m trying to take photos everyday again.
Making art gives me that distance away from thinking about my self-confidence, worrying about if I’m good enough.
It feels like being suspended in the place I go to when I sleep. I make something that seems familiar, or something what I want to see.
And having my photos small & accessible to me is like having one’s keys in their pockets. I like to go back and visit. My worlds, my collection of artifacts.

Special thanks to Gary @standupvirgin who invited me to see first-hand our mistreated water but also appreciate its value and the life that found ways to exist despite of the pollution @gowanusdredgers
From watching it by in a subway car to taking it slow and riding it on canoe: The Gowanus Canal.
