Sanctuaries are reverential in nature, and often comprise both art and object. I construct these experiences using culturally relevant materials that reference the black experience, pop culture, and my own explorations in spirituality as an agnostic. I believe that whatever you put your attention to grows, and with this in mind, I carefully curate sanctuaries so that my audience can feel like they have entered a sacred space, decontextualized from religion.
My art practice is interdisciplinary, involving painting, sculpture, assemblage, installation and digital art, with creative reuse being a major part of my practice. Many leftover works from previous concentrations usually end up recycled and repurposed for new art. As a result, my work is constantly evolving. With each reuse, an object or artwork develops more power through the increasingly complex associations they can take on through its history of reuse. I am able to relive or recontextualize memories, construct new narratives, and explore new perspectives and philosophies through their reuse. Although these come from a personal place, I hope that my audience can experience them in ways that ring true for them.
