By focusing on abstract fields of color with hints of figuration or geometry, I am able to explore my own intersectionality. Within my work I seek to challenge my own understanding of community, background and heritage.
As a trained muralist I learned to respect representational figures and history, but as a contemporary print maker I challenge the cannons that my predecessors set forth in order to bring together abstract language, and geometrically conceived figures of brilliant color that allow me to examine my own intersectionality.
While introspectively focusing on my own subjectivity and that of those who came before me, I seek to transcend the connotations of categorization of my forefathers. My artwork seeks to evoke a sense of self that transcends my current understanding.
