Artist Statement

I’m in the process of moving from my birth country to USA when I started the concept of this piece. I just “finished” it when I migrated to the "the land of the free" which is currently, also, the #1 COVID-19 infected country.

This piece would be my first official hand self portrait in Nevada where my mother died.

Notice how I try to comfort my own hands and the way they are positioned. It may seem like I'm praying...but not really…

This piece is a part of my Vanity project which shows and/or includes my hand/s as my rendition of a self portrait because I choose to show who I really am through every lines of my hands.
"If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people." - Thich Nhat Hanh (quote)

You see-
- Faces shows "what we choose to look like" to control of what others thinks of us - our REPUTATION
- Hands shows "who we are" - our CHARACTER

Our hands is our true identity.

Bear in mind that Reputation and Character are two very different things.
Reputation is that which people are believed to be; character is that which people are!

*** This piece will be professionally packed and will be shipped with protective packaging materials. ***
