    • Into the Light is the new series by funded by the City of Boston Opportunity Fund Grant. “In this project I created five abstract resin paintings based on spirituality and universal connectivity. Most of my paintings are done in acrylics, giving me the time and space to enter into a meditative space to work on each piece. Because resin hardens so quickly I only had minutes to enter into a calm and centered state of painting, with each new piece truly being a living test of my ability to connect to peacefulness under the pressure of rushing against the clock. I believe that this artistic experiment perfectly recapitulates the constantly rushing state of our society. It highlights the need for each one of us to find the means to find ourselves and be present, despite the pressure to just keep going. “  Through February 28.
