Much of the work I make sits on the borders of painting and sculpture. Triangulating biography, American politics, and images related to African American trauma, I have developed a language that employs iconography and subtleties in tandem... What drives my creative process most is a desire to alchemically transform objects and material to address nuance in black historical narratives. I traverse multiple styles of making and presentation to draw the viewer into an environment with each piece. I work this way as a means to reveal the power of the imagery used and evoke curiosity in the narratives that lie within them.
