One of my paintings won an award at the Art of Pride Show. The Art of Pride show was held outdoors in Balboa Park, San Diego. The painting is a play on identity,  masks and harlequin style colors (reminiscent of PA Dutch quilts) and also plays with the identity of both the subject and the artist. This pinting along with several others in the same style attempts to examine our identities and how we navigate the social arena in person or online, and in the apps of our phones, creating new avatars and new personas with every new encounter. This painting along with the others in the series are designed to have a touch of mystery – and display a preoccupation with the issues of identity, how our identities are in a constant state of change and flux—represented by the dimensional geometric shapes that compose the body.
