Artist’s Statement: I had just finished watching “Call Me by Your Name,” a movie that heavily resonated with me, and I wanted to recreate the atmosphere I felt from some of its scenes. Elio and Oliver, the two main characters, would often use the morning to hold intimate conversations, so I stayed up all night and waited for the aquamarine blue that signaled that the sun was inching its way toward the horizon.
