About the Artist:
“Art is not a luxury; it is a necessity. It documents history — it helps educate people and store knowledge for generations to come. Generations of people that don’t see themselves in art lose their history. My art allows me to develop an identity and say: “This is my story. This is what I know.”
Art unity communities allow us to dialogue about history and its legacy. These are some of the most important works I have made. They speak to who I am, my heritage, and my culture.
My work explores the relationship between Black diaspora sensibilities and urban spaces. With influences as diverse as Kara Walker and Jean-Michel Basquiat, new synergies are crafted from constructed and discovered layers. Currently living in Baltimore, I am interested in the sensation of moving, the deconstruction and reassembly of surfaces, and of forgetting and remembering what has come before.”
We hope to see you Thursday, November 10 from 5 – 7pm for the opening reception.
Validated parking is available at 15 West Franklin St. Garage.
