Title: The Art of Memory
Description: It’s almost like a memory bank, the clouds store all the memories that I’ve made over the years and also make me who I am today. I also have a spirit standing in the middle, I kind of think of that as the spirit of memory, that spirit lets all these dots out (those represent the memory) and they go into the clouds.


Maxwell Emcays presents a new body of work that shows identity through his “Flag Series”. The series motto is “celebrating sovereign individualism within the collective”.  The goal of this exhibit is to encourage and provide opportunity to young talent while showcasing a new body of work that speaks to identity and representation.
