Artist Statement:

I love my sons and I am sure my father loves me and his father loved him.  I left a particular legacy for my sons I am not proud of.  It wasn’t intentional but it was something I did not and could not stop.  The role I played in this endeavor was the part of the harassed, denounced, and deprived.  My sons have and, unfortunately, will continue to encounter these issues.  I wish I could stop this maltreatment but I do not know how.  So I attempt to teach them how to survive in this climate exactly how I have been able to survive and how my father and his father had been able to survive.

Artist Statement:

If you walk too close, it appears as though the paint on his fingers will rub off on you.  Or maybe you want to touch his hand with yours.  ‘We Are One” finds a lone-hooded subject with paint on his fingertips which represent the diversity of the world population.   We may be from different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities and different colors, however we are connected, we are one people that live on this plant called earth.
