Images in this series originated in "The Wall", a solo exhibition in September 2001.
"My focus initially was on boundaries, with images intended to convey both the walls we build and the walls we climb over to explore. My "back" views express both the barriers we create and our shared humanity. The series has evolved into memory paintings of small vignettes observed when travelling in Asia.
From back views, paintings evolved into "no faces" to symbolize our shared humanity however distinct our surroundings might be."
