As a curator, I strongly believe Art can help break down the walls of our differences.
I have lived in France and Brazil, with extensive travels in Western Europe where I steeped myself in the worlds of art, culture, and history. These powerful experiences formed the foundation of my core values as an artist and a curator.
Everyone needs acceptance and a sense of community and sometimes we let cultural differences put a wall up to prevent others in. If one would look around the world and travel, they would see what I’ve seen, that love is love, hate is hate, hate is everywhere, love is everywhere and in everyone. Emotions cross the boundaries of cultures and emotions are at the core of art. Art can help break down the walls of our differences.
