Womb at the Pit of a Watefall, 2020




In my work, I depict moments of revelation and self-understanding. The symbolism in my practice stems from the natural environment and the spiritual, ancestral, meditative and dream realms that makes up my everyday life. This work takes imagery from a meditation. In this meditation, I encountered a healing waterfall, but before I placed my body under it, I swam to its pit. To uncover what was in its depths. In dream symbolism, bodies of water often represent the subconscious and emotional planes. Under the water fall I saw two whales. Salt water creatures in a fresh water environment. Beings that were comfortable and adaptable in this new environment. Afterwards, I swam to the surface was met by a hawk. It signaled for me to go under the water. An animal that sees from above and all angles, from a higher plane and different consciousness. The works in this show exalt the natural environment by showcasing its divinity and my/our spirit's relationship to the complex ecosystems surrounding me/us. I place characters outdoors in order to express introspection in open space, signaling at the necessity of freedom for true growth. In these energetic settings, the Black spirit isn’t arrested. The Black imagination and aesthetic thrive because these realms emit a frequency of freedom and healing.
