Artist Statement Submitted 2014

In my large scale mixed media paintings I blur the boundaries between traditional and contemporary modes of representation. While making references to African American and Gullah geechee culture. I create layered aesthetic designs to capture viewers and to create narrative often using modern and pop elements found in our media driven world. in my work I explore race, class, and cultural identity using various media and installations.
