About the exhibition
"As I selected work for this online exhibition, the word “field” kept coming into my mind. The multiple meanings of the word resonated with the pieces I was attracted to. As a visual artist and Art Therapist at LAND Gallery in Brooklyn, I have a dual relationship to working in the same field as the participants of programs like NIAD. From abstraction to representation, the work in this exhibit speaks to the field of being an artist, of painting, of color, space, time, and being a self-taught artist. "
