These works belong to my new series Full Circle, where I am reflecting a time in my life of personal "renaissance": life after death,
spiritual resilience and recycling, and the excitement of prospects. This new awareness makes me feel seventeen again and often times
like attending a Prom. Here, I am formally adding Cuban motives to the figure (i.e. Polymita snails) and naming some of the paintings
with "Rueda de Casino" dancing moves. This gorgeous Cuban salsa dance, very much the driving force behind this project, happens to be
performed in a circle of people.
