An Odyssey of Whispers
Within this series of paintings, I document and explore the experience and spirituality of African Americans. We often look back, to understand, to move forward, but the looking back is never a simplistic exercise. Such an act is filled with fragments, clues and emotions but it is full of mystery. This work is at once personal biography, historical reconstruction, spiritual exploration as well as political necessity. All images are painted on tarpaper, and several are mixed media.
