2000 Seedling Award

  • Neighborhood: West Philadelphia
  • Discipline: Visual Arts

Four years ago, I had the opportunity to study the behavior and morphology of infected blood cells under a microscope. I observed small drops of contaminated blood at three thousand times their actual size. Initially I saw numerous healthy cells vibrating and floating in glowing plasma. Then the cells began to move rapidly in a chaotic motion as the infection spread. Within minutes, the virus had overwhelmed all the cells.

I am constantly observing and recording every phase of my life. I believe that the journey through which I interact with nature has to begin from within. I am nature-inseparable from my environs. With painting I am able to examine, challenge and discover myself in nature. I want to learn from nature and explore its concealed phenomenon. I have learned that everything in nature is dependent on each other; together they create a greater rhythm. I hope to manifest and convey the wisdom and beauty of nature in my work.
