This collection is like a box of chocolates: a Sol sampler containing paintings and drawings from three series, each a chapter in an ongoing story of constant flux and cyclical time. These intertwined bodies floating in space are a visual expression of what our intuition already knows: all living things are interconnected. We are oneness having the experience of separateness; each one of us serving as a portal through which the universe observes itself. Since every figure I depict is a real person in my life appearing and reappearing in my work over decades, I also see this imagery as a contemplation of the concept of reincarnation: “Every lifetime, we meet the same circle of souls, to say thank you or to say sorry, and once again exchange our roles." (From ‘Amen’ by Gogol Bordello, my favorite New York gypsy punk band.)
