T. JAY SANTA ANA, ABSTRACT ARTIST
I am a gay Filipino Scorpio INFJ and I like painting energy.
The work I create is always the culmination of who I was, who I am, and where I’ve been. These moments are visual representations of time and space overlapping above the trajectory of my life, entwined with the lives of my family and our movements from one continent to another. In fact, I see most lives as lines. I see them in the movement of my family history, the shapes of the stories my ninang tells, and in the path that intersects with strangers on the bus, interweaving, interconnecting, with vast spaces converging to reveal the unknown. The intention I hold for my work is to carry on the forward motion of these lines that began long before my brushes ever touched a canvas.
