ABOUT EciAM
Bloomfield CT
American artist, Cecil Eci'Am Gresham

Artist Statement:

I like to think that my creativity is one big gift box, full of surprises and disappointments. I delves into the marginal aspects of my subject material to enter another conceptual realm. There the viewer is invited to confront all the layers of meanining that underscore the most ordinary of surface representations.
