About the Work

My work uses painting as an exploration to delve into the internalized senses that are not quantifiable which we use to perceive the world: such as intuition, clairvoyance, and other feelings that lie outside of the physical realm. Fragility and impermanence are a constant in a three-dimensional reality, and these works show those very slippages that occur due to interruptions by the metaphysical world. This speaks to our current age, where representation and reality can be interchangeable, and physicality can be fleeting. History and fantasy, also, can be interchangeable and used to reinvent our identities. I am interested, in particular, how legacies of Middle Passage and slavery can be re-imagined to fantasize alternate dimensions and multiple story-lines ones that may not be in history books.
