“What is the essence of your life as a border artist?”
“The border is used as constant metaphor, it has constructs that defy logic and the resilience of forced surreal juxtaposition. Traversing this membrane becomes part of the vocabulary for artists living this complicated region. We (i collaborate with my brother Jamex) feel this informs our work, adding layer upon layer of texture and meaning(s) to the narratives we assemble.
