Using diverse forms of expression, my work explores social, ethical and political issues originating from the discourse of Modern American Culture . Uncovering concerns that plague women, traditionally excluded communities and the disenfranchised, I use traces of history, found materials, film, fabric, wood, paint and lanquage to tell stories and inform on these narratives. Discarded objects from the past become sculptural comments on the present. Historical residue weaves images with textures that tell complex stories that hopefully inspire thought in the viewer.
As an African American I am aware of our past sacrafices and our contemporary struggles. These truths inform my work as well as my person. As an artist I am more interested in where we are heading now and how we, all of us , will continue to navigate the future.
