I am in the process of unlearning everything I know about art. Through a series of personal paintings, I hope to repossess the honesty and sincerity in creating art that I once had when I was younger.

I realize now that I have lost this sincerity from the moment I exposed myself to the pressures of art school and commissioned work. There is nothing wrong with that. One can’t help but try to impress professors and peers. After all, good grades must be earned and clients’ expectations must be met. But there is plenty of time for that, and now I believe it’s about time for me to find and create opportunities where I allow myself to be detached from such pressures and contests in popularity.

Normally, I do not like to talk about my art unless it is in retrospective assessment of old works. But this journey that I am taking is not artistic in nature. It is a rediscovery of the self; of old values, interests, experiences, and pains.
