The Embrace Series is an exploration of the sacred scaffolding at the intersection between our physical world and the immaterial realm. These paintings embrace dualities, contrasts, and tensions and seek harmony amidst the dynamic multiplicity of opposing elements. These paintings are inspired by the poetry of Mary Oliver, T.S. Eliot, and Wendell Berry, and writings by Thich Nhat Hanh and Rumi.
