: Sacration + Ex Voto

The Sacration Series and the Ex Voto Series were originally exhibited as part of A False Door as part of the Governor's Island Art Fair in September 2016. These paintings serve as either offerings (ex voto) or sacrations (devotions). Symbols and designs are asemic (non-meaningful) as a way of focusing on the expansiveness of human ingenuity in language, form, and literacy. The paintings also employ bright colors and rigid geometric forms that serve as a stark distinction from their ancient inspirations.
