"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self, and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists.
This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own minds. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside.
My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic.
When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”.
In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art."
