When the people of a diaspora move to a new country, they bring their culture with them, and with it, new ways of thinking and living, which add to the richness of the culture that receives them.
In a multicultural nation, second and third generations mix and mingle with people from other recent diasporas as well as with those whose families have live in the country for centuries.
The metallic bronze backgrounds represent the strength and richness of a multi-culture, while the faces merge and demerge as you explore each painting, showing that we are at once individuals and a collective.
