"BRILLIANT PASSAGE" combines 3 source photos I took in Los Angeles, where I live, to create an imagined scene reminiscent of buildings I've seen in Pakistan and Vietnam, where I grew up.

The title literally refers to the bright light illuminating these buildings, set in an alleyway, or passage. Figuratively, "Brilliant Passage" refers to an excellent excerpt from a book. As a lover of stories, I wanted to insert this idea of hovering between familiarity and imagination, as many of my paintings do.
