I agree with David Hockney’s view that photography is at times limited when attempting to show multiple perspectives of a subject.
For this artwork, I wanted to integrate perspectives from different frames and angles of one specific subject—a woman sewing a fishing net. I observed the scene along the seashore in my hometown, and I took multiple pictures of her.
From each picture, I took one part and combined the paintings of all of them to form a larger work. Now the finished artwork is still 2D but displays multiple perspectives and angles that tell a more interesting and holistic story.

It’s obvious that his appreciation of art and his experience using a wide range of media is what enables his artwork to span another dimension. He is a confident artist that is able to communicate his ideas visually while maintaining a strong relationship with the viewer. His passion for creating is contagious and it was my pleasure to share the past two years of his educational career.
