ARTIST STATEMENT


Sanctuaries are reverential in nature, and often comprise both art and object.  I construct these experiences referencing the visual language of my former anglican faith, as well as my burgeoning understanding of the spiritual practices of my ancestral heritage from West Africa, and philosophies from around the world. 

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 end up recycled and repurposed for new art. As a result, my old work is constantly evolving with each reiteration building upon its associative complexity. In addition to icons and symbols depicted in my paintings, people can relive or recontextualize memories, construct new narratives, and explore new perspectives and philosophies through their associations to the objects assembled within many of the works. I hope that my audience can engage with and embrace the varied themes presented in the sacred spaces I create either through their faith or decontextualized from religion.
