“Soul Patch” is a collection of unique and colorful abstractions that were inspired by a rare childhood experience.* And while this particular exhibition invites the viewer into a world of riotous color and visceral experience, it is simultaneously exploring the complexity of self-identity in a social media world. In traditional social interactions, people generally walk away knowing certain facts about you through what they saw and what you let them see. In today’s social media interactions, what is “known” is often strategically crafted to be audacious enough to stand out amongst the vying voices, but ultimately proves to be abject concealment of human vulnerability. This work challenges the viewer to sit with the tension of wanting to see more, wanting to know the “true colors,” wanting to wipe away the course veneer that hides the true soul of another.
