Artist Statement Submitted 2020

Johannes Barfield is a multimedia artist from Winston-Salem, NC, who works in photography, video, sculpture, and sound installations. His work revolves around the black American experience and how institutions and systems of power and influence connect to the amplification and nullification of blackness. Johannes's work examines urban and rural environments as a space for creative exchange, childhood memories, acts of violence provoked by poverty, internet age lynchings by police who receive immunity, the open road, car culture, and the music played at family cookouts.
