All I Have Is Right Here

Oil on canvas, 2017, 60"w x 60"h x 1"d

All I Have Is Right Here was created as a response to a series of closed-eye visual images I experienced. This is meant to be a minimization of how we experience closed-eye hallucinations as a result of external pressure and the shapes that are revealed when we close our eyes. The image appears when I shut my eyes tight while being held by the one I love. The image captured is an abstract visualization of a brief moment of escape, when the overwhelming nature of the exterior world melts away, and I am caught up in the presence of another human.
