This piece is titled Destiny Palms and was photographed with Canon camera. The subject is my own hands, digitally manipulated in photoshop so that the fingers of the two images merge into one another. The photographs are inverted and edited so as to highlight to texture and abstract beauty of hands. The drawn pattern is both a source of contrast, but a puzzle for any viewer–a hint into symbolism and possibly even destiny.
