STATEMENT

A meditation on symbolism and texture, my works in paint have sonic vibrations and my works in sound invoke technicolor visions. Through the materiality of paper, archival material, and music, my work aims to unite.  Color, shape, and rhythm become constellations of the African Diaspora, answering the questions posed by ancestral memory.  Through experiences in different city landscapes, I contribute to the expansiveness of what it means to be Black. In my practice, Blackness is the center; all color, sound, materials, and imagery activate through a relationship to Blackness.
