This interdisciplinary exploration retraces and reimagines the influences of culture, craft, and place on the artist. Through the multicultural perspective provided by the history of maiolica glaze painting, the artist maps his own journey in the form of paintings, ceramics, and installations to offer a new translation of pattern, form, and space and to provide new perspectives of cultural influence as an American artist working in Mexico and Italy.
