Kamaria Shepherd

My work subtly revolves around issues of identity, memory, race, culture, womanhood, and femininity as an African American woman in the United States and beyond while the pieces themselves wave between minimal and excess, bold and subtle, loud and intimate, to speak or not to speak... I use found materials such as clothing, bath rugs, and pearl earrings, giving citation to the presence of a body, a female, domesticity.
