What is beautiful and what is terrible is not always obvious. To some the idea of beauty is certainty and to others what is terrible is the unknown. To reach an understanding of something unknown we must delve deeper, yet surrender to simplicity. Inspired by the beautiful and the formidable, the works in Terrible Hermosa recall precious relics and lost languages. Using luscious, shimmery, soft surfaces and emerging, enveloping, calligraphic patterns, the works are an endeavor to realize that the beautiful and the terrible go hand in hand.
