As a queer black artist, I show my perception of society through the manipulation of materials around me. We are all made of the same materials, and with that in mind, I believe my creations can bring folks to a common ground. I hope to inspire those who want to break the mold of societal norms and free themselves from oppression.
I work directly with found, divergent, venerable, and unconventional materials. I use these materials to tell the narrative of my queer black experience wherein I recreate the memories and moments that compose the very fibers of my psyche.
Through combines, installations and performances, I evoke what it means to be vulnerable, transparent, and luminal in telling one's personal story. My story is one of surviving the adversities of my disenfranchised identity. Through this narrative, I hope to redirect the dialogue onto the viewer.
