The book that stirred me deeply was Abraham Verghese's Cutting For Stone.
One of the exhibitions that had a huge effect on me was "A Visionary Modernist" by Sudanese artist Ibrahim El-Salahi.
When I read the following words by El-Salahi on one of the text panels, I was stopped in my tracks:
The subjects are looking at and through me, as if trying to remind me, through their perfect silence, of what I had failed to see.
With that, I'd like to share some of my new work. (Please excuse the repeats.)
