STRUGGLES OF PEACE SERIES
I first became interested in exploring the Struggles of Peace theme through an artistic perspective so as to better understand the impact that a process of peace has in the lives of individuals and in the environment. As I began painting these relationships I discovered the process of peace involves three main categories: Basic Struggles, Specific Struggles, and challenge Struggles. Each of these categories of life pertains to the different issues developed from our society, the environment, and our human emotional responses. The colors explored in this series reflect my stance on each of the three main struggles. My expectation is that my audience will bear witness to these responses I expressed and feel the same impact.
