The current issue of Vallum (one of the most important publications on poetry in Canada) will feature several images from my Removed series including the image “Ex-Couple” that I created in Jakarta, Indonesia last year while making new images for The World Economic Forum.

After 20 years of dreaming and 2 years of searching I finally landed my own studio space! The studio is located in the Elizabeth Neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina about half a mile from our house. I’m so excited to get started on some new projects. I will have a studio welcoming party in the next few weeks.
I am honored that Maude Arsenault curated Removed into this years Art Souterrain Festival. The festival is a main attraction for Montreal each March and I am so excited to participate. This is one of the most public displays of my work which was said to have been viewed in person by over 150,000 people! I was fortunately invited to the festival and spent an incredible week in Montreal. I met so many amazing artists, and art lovers and I hope to visit that wonderful city again in the near future.
It’s difficult to explain the feeling when you put your heart into your work and then someone who truly appreciates it builds a relationship with you and then makes the leap to live with your art. It’s like a part of you and that person merge and you know both of you will never be the same. Thanks Michael Pascual for making my work and life a permanent fixture of your home in #HongKong. I excitedly await our next hangout but until then I’ll be hanging right there on your living room wall. Thanks Kurt Tong for the framer recommendation. They were really great to work with.
Once again, pieces from Removed are finding their way into another country. The exhibition HELLO, ROBOT. DESIGN BETWEEN HUMAN AND MACHINE curated by AMELIE KLEIN, THOMAS GEISLER, MARLIES WIRTH, and FREDO DE SMET runs from January 23 - April 22, 2019 at Museum Art Architecture Technology in Lisbon, Portugal.
