Artist Statement Submitted 2019

Through my work, I create three symbols: a pawn, a corn and a horse, I investigate psychology of racism in the United States. My work manifests in art forms ranging from sculpture, installation, and wood cuts, to crocheting and video. The emphasis on these three symbols creates a thread between my individual pieces and comments on the symbols of structural racism in our society. My work comments on capitalism, consumerism, brainwashing, in the ideals of black body today.
