“As an artist, I have learned to become a medium for a viewer to observe through to attain a different perspective. Just as a pair of spectacles would either alter or enhance the wearer’s vision, I lend myself to an onlooker to see a subject matter through my own eyes to observe differently.” – Peju Alatise
