The exhibition statement is below.
The name of this show is as simple as my work can be expressed in written language. Interaction: between the viewer and the viewed, the observer and the experience, the paint and the canvas, the dance and the impulse, the model and the shutter, the photographer and the darkroom, the hand and the chalk, the music and the space, the nail and the frame, the creator and the created. Ultimately, this is just one physical representation of the interaction between the creator of everything and something he created to create.
*This is not an art museum, if you like, you may satisfy your curiosity and touch my paintings. I don't mind. I would rather you touch them than leave wondering what the paint feels like.
