Free Soiling, 2014




My work is intended to create thought-provoking and narrative interpretations of historical and contemporary African American themes and related issues. Often times loosely based on fictional and or non-fictional stories, these narrative images also strive to provoke the human emotion, to ask questions, to spark a dialogue. For most of the paintings that I make, the computer plays an important role in the development process as far as color experimentation, compositional arrangements of elements, and scale. Although things tend to change drastically from computer screen to canvas, it remains my primary and necessary way to feed and express my ideas. The images used for the collages in some of my paintings can come from various sources such as African American history books, newspaper copies, and or internet resources. The personal challenge of dealing with social and or political issues in my art, from the perspective of an African American artist, fuels that drive in me to want to communicate in ways that I may not be able to do verbally.
