“Resonance” was a collective show hosted by OCAF, Jan 2018. This show united sound with visual arts. Every artwork had its own sound track, so you could actually “listen” to the paintings. My paintings are portraits of immigrants from diverse backgrounds, inspired by the current political events concerning immigration and what it means to be an American. The “sound” part of the project focus on the richness of foreign sounds brought to the U.S. by immigrants. The portraits are accompanied by recordings of the subject reciting a poem or verses in his/her native language, accompanied by a sound track from their own country.
