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.
