Artist—Statement



My sculptures, installations and writing reveal my internal dialogue on matters of erasure juxtaposed against the unseen reality of an unrestricted BIPOC future.

My work serves to be restorative within its environments so as to exist as accessible reference points of peace and remembrance.

My work meets us together and returns us to the reflection of who we can be together on Earth.

Installation, Sculpture
2020—01

This work is a 112 ft installation located along the perimeter fence at College Park Memorial Cemetery. It is a series of life size acrylic silhouettes depicting soldiers from the 24th infantry of the Historic Buffalo Soldiers.  The “Houston 13” soldiers of the Buffalo Soldiers 24th Infantry were convicted at an unfair trial and then executed without the right for clemency. Efforts to pardon these soldiers are being led by the descendants of the soldiers; both family and brothers and sisters in arms.

“HOL’D UP”
Installation, Sculpture
2020—02

This work is particularly influenced by social sculptors, Joseph Beuys and especially, Bert Long the artist, mystic and founding member of Project Row Houses.
It reveals my internal dialogue on matters of erasure juxtaposed against the unseen reality of an unrestricted BIPOC future; using materials that are tools and objects for reflection or surveillance.
This work serves to be restorative in all environments so to exist as accessible reference points of peace, remembrance, yet to be fathomed realities; an unrestricted BIPOC futures. For non BIPOC people  this work can communicate through form and object the voids that erasure causes leading to separation and the required paths to secure a sustained and diverse future that is reflected in light and not projecting from erasure.
