Support for ongoing work.


My artistic practice is committed to the idea of art as a catalyst for individual and social transformation. My multimedia installations were exhibited in prestigious venues nationally, receiving generous support from the Guggenheim Foundation, Lilly Endowment, National Endowment for the Arts and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation. In 1990, my work gained international exposure in “New Photography 6” at The Museum of Modern Art and “Black Male” at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Whitney 2000 Biennial. My collaborative large-scale public art inventions in major cities have stimulated dialogue and community revitalization. Concurrently, my ongoing essay of letterpress posters together with my recent writing projects continued my exploration into inner space. I am navigating the inner realm of narrative, memory and emotions to find ways to create epiphany within myself and in the imagination of my audience.
