Severance is woven into my history as a Black american. The all-consuming desire to reconnect is expressed in the portals, rituals, and portraits I create, but my work has deviated from that branch and forked into another. My current body of work examines authenticity within reconnection, and appropriation within structures of spirituality. It seeks to normalize the hunger for access and knowledge that every human desires, while confronting the flattening of history and ancestry to mere DNA tests and percentages.
