A painting, particularly an abstract painting, can initiate a conversation between the artist and the viewer, the artist and the world. These conversations can serve as articulations of ideas, concerns, and hopes that have the ability to bridge cultures and heighten our interconnectedness to one another and the natural environment. I believe it is possible through a visual experience to gain understanding of our own humanity and the humanity of others. Having this awareness can lead to an enhanced understanding of our interconnectedness not only to humanity but to the earth as well.
