Memphis Botanic Garden says
Exhibit Dates: June 1 - June 27

"Using water as a reference, these paintings serve as an abstract investigation of empathy. There are a number of ways to approach easy questions in the world. "Why is the sky blue?" I could use scientific language to explain how solar photons and ozone interact and how the rods and cones in our eyes interpret those interactions. The simple question might be the wrong question though--forget what you know about photons. On this June day in the garden, observe a warm orange sunrise, a black huff of thunderheads, and the ultraviolet gloaming of a firefly hunt. With the observable world constantly spinning through the spectrum, I am trusting these paintings to help me ask a tougher question. I know we are made mostly of water, but what wet and unobservable thing ripples inside of us, helping us find communion with the people we love? "
