pieces move me so much. The combination of the abstract and

beauty of these pieces are such a strong testament to the subject.
Thank you for this work
There is a

was stunningly beautiful. I walked in off the street, it was
over whelmed. Your work proves again and again the power of

Your images are evocative of so much I knew existed. We must

countries. Your painting s hit home to one who knew it as
home - and they go deep inside the reality of it - the terrible

make sense of and heal. It's an enormous achievement, and I
hope a model for others to engage their creative spirit with the
complex social truths so that we, as citizens, can benefit from
the perspectives and insights of such engagement.
