All of us have stories, and many narratives possess different facets. My artworks explore the different sides of stories through overlapping surfaces. This collection is a multi-layered acrylic paint on cardboard and plexiglass (or glass), where the transparent layers overlie the solid-surfaced painting. This collection is a humbling opportunity to engage the audience in discovering the bottom layer of these combinations by changing the angle at which they view the work. In other words, the paintings reveal their message only when the viewer changes their central focal point to a different one. This interaction co-relates to our social life, where we need to change our vantage point to discover the concealed aspects of the happenings surrounding us _ the inequity happening behind the scene. My hope is that my works will inspire viewers to pause and think, looking closely at different angles when they view both art and the events of the world around us.
