Good Fences: Neighboring Narratives of the Soul explores the utilization of fences within my artistic journey. These structures symbolize both division and protection, especially concerning the social and cultural challenges faced by people of color. With a focus on wooden fences, their significance extends beyond mere physical barriers; they represent the passage of time through the intricate grains of the wood. Moreover, the act of reclaiming these fences serves as a powerful reminder that the old can always be rejuvenated and transformed anew.

Through my artistic endeavor, I aim to visually articulate and celebrate the intertwined past and present experiences of individuals within the African diaspora. By illuminating our shared narratives, I seek to foster a deeper connection to our ancestors and a broader global community.” – Lavett Ballard
