About the Artwork:
Two worlds converge and become something greater than the sum of their parts. This artwork portrays the power of human connection, the beauty that emerges from the unity of seemingly opposing elements. Through the touch of two hands, it depicts the power of connection and the mysteries that lie beyond it. It invites the viewer to reflect on the infinite possibilities that can arise from the merging of two worlds. It aspires to depict the beauty of unity, the complexity of human relationships, and the mysteries that lie within each of us.
