I am interested in the exploration of race, history and the formation of identity. My work conceptualizes blackness as spectral, constantly shifting between places of belonging and segregation, from criminal bodies to consumed bodies, from spooks to revenants. History, culture and language document these transformations. Between these shifts, an image emerges that confronts the boundaries of labels and questions the construction of race. Formally trained as a printmaker, I utilize print as a trapping for the spectral image and appropriate historical texts and images. Through print, an image is captured, reproduced and disseminated. For the purpose of social critique, ideas are scattered and take root like seeds or diaspore. As an artist of the African diaspora, the media of print is also used an expression of my identity.
