Arist2Artist Fellowship

In my body of work, I want to investigate the language and imagery to explore the issues class, race and culture in their relationship through rituals. In each artwork, I assembled constructions of objects and images in an attempt to engage the subjects through representational, psychological and spiritual perspectives.
Elements of decaying and blooming landscapes, earth mapping and the migration of life forms are all visual metaphors for the transformation of the unknown and the profound. Through these varieties of elements, my intention is to speak to the notion of what is the significance of life or the purpose of existence. This is the ongoing conversation that I want the artwork to engage in.
