Still Life with Fruit Gallery is an alternative gallery space run by art professors Chad Serhal and Katie Baczeski

This window space is attached to Tom's Auto Repair, a working garage in DeLand, Florida

Such a cool gallery space, especially lit up at night and I really liked having the trace outlines as a stand-in for my body. 

“Self-Portrait” video was on display in Venice, Italy, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and ITSLIQUID ART SPACE- Venice Grand Canal. 
Jan 27th- Feb 18th, 2022.
 

The Body Language 2022” is an international group exhibition of photography, painting, video art, installation/sculpture and performance art.
