My current body of work speaks directly to the global crisis we all currently face. As an American, I am especially cognizant of how our leaders are responding to this crisis. I originally titled this group ‘Divided We Fall’ as it is impossible not to notice the division present in our country. However, in a desire to take a more optimistic approach, I titled my exhibition ‘United We Stand.’ I want to emphasize a unity amongst us, regardless of party, ethnicity, race, religion, and gender. My work observes the pitfalls of allowing division to thrive and grow amongst a people. However, I shine a light on these things so that we as human beings can choose not to participate in this sowing of division.
