STATEMENT OF WORK

My work is a manifestation of black female liberation. In these images I transform WNBA players into super heroes searching outer space for a new home that recognizes their greatness, skill, and perseverance. These women finally able to liberate themselves from the hierarchies of Earth embracing their future while destroying their past. I view the restricted consciousness of my African-American existence through this landscape. Narratives by John Akomfrah and Octavia Butler have inspired me to create a world shaped by black excellence, freedom, and a carefree people through painting. I use time as a dimension in my work to expand the scope of the image. Transforming physical rectangles into portals to my alternate reality.
