Lot Essay

Born and raised in Brooklyn, my artwork is inspired by New York and its melting pot of different ethnicities, sub-cultures, and personalities. New York also allows me to explore themes of race relations, and social justice, as well as the resilience of Black consciousnesses and African-American culture.
Although New York City has been my muse throughout my artistic life, I also draw inspiration from my travels throughout the United States and abroad.
Art is about expression; I live through my expression in various art forms from painting and mixed media, to photography and installation art. I hope to emphasize the need for diverse voices in art and develop a new iconography derived from my history, culture, and background.
This series “Target Practice” speaks to the uncomfortable reality of how Black people and people of color can inevitably experience violence, go through the school to prison pipeline, and even - be murdered by a police officer.
