Realization

Nature has been a source of lifelong inspiration in my artwork. As I reflect on my current struggles as an immigrant, I find comparison with the life of air plants, their rootlessness and ability to thrive as part of an overwhelming diversity. This painting represents the second stage of encounter with a new place, when celebrating your individuality becomes a necessary pre-condition to entering a new community. Without realising the importance of your individuality, you cannot realize your value to the community.
