Jesus uses paper as a metaphor for people, their relationships, identity, and their home. The themes, as he paints the paper in his work, are about found home and self-identity. From face value, paper has varying subtle shifts in color and form. Using the versatility of paper he creates a bridge between abstract, minimalism, and representational. What inspired Jesus to create art, was his observation of his surrounding society, home, also the development of self-identification.
