    From the artist: Our emotions are valuable; they allow us to express how we are feeling at any moment in time. When expressing emotions, a person’s facial expressions are usually involved. But our emotions are also displayed with our hands. My intent for this exhibition is to capture the moment when hands display emotions, and to immerse the viewer into experiencing various emotions.
