My art practice is an investigation of power, perception, semiotics, and fear as they relate to institutional inequities. I have created a mythology, concerning the complexities of contemporary Black life. My artwork is influenced by sci-fi literature from such authors as Octavia Butler, and H.P. Lovecraft. Themes in science fiction can be analogous to the many Black experiences in America. Therefore, I have created a mythos populated with beings that are born out of the fragility of what Ta-Nehisi Coates refers to as the “dream”. With that I create mixed-media installations, paintings, drawings, and collages.
