How many paintings have you installed at Florida International University’s College of Law and when were they made?
I’ve installed 6 paintings in the law school. They were made between 2000 and 2011.
Why did you choose to install the works at the College of Law?
An academic context is a great place to present my work as part of a serious discourse in which students and visitors alike can participate. I’ve been eyeing the large walls at the College of Law since my time as a student in the Master’s of Fine Art program at FIU. In fact, I have 20 large-scale paintings currently being displayed throughout the various buildings of FIU’s North, South and Miami Beach campuses. It’s important as an artist to find places to show one’s work. FIU has been a great partner in helping me do so.
Why are the paintings so big?
They have to be.
How long did it take to make each one?
Between 6 months and 3 years.
