Last night was the opening for my Ancient Gods and Contemporary Circumstances exhibition.  I had previously displayed this body of work earlier this year at the Academia de Juventude, shortly after its completion.  I am very proud of this recent series, and I have received a generally positive response.  I think many people share my fascination with Greek/Roman gods and their accompanying mythology.  Social commentary combined with these conceptual deities felt like a natural progression into a full series.

I am delighted to have another opportunity to share is with the public before we leave the Azores.  I am also tremendously grateful to the supportive men and women who came out to spend their evening at the opening.  I love hearing the interpretations viewers find in my work.  I enjoy answering their questions and explaining my technique.  I am always nervous when I have to speak about my work to a crowd–especially a crowd whose first language is not the same as mine.  However, people are usually very patient and kind–which does help to ease my mind.
