Anti-Pro Exhibition

New York Studio Residency Program, Brooklyn, New York, 2016
    How we come to find and create our identity is something that cannot be pinpointed into one specific influence, but it can be said that from birth we begin to receive information from the world around us that shapes us into who we are and how we see ourselves. These ideas that have been placed upon us are carried around until we decide that they no longer serve us. This body of work represents those spaces of both stagnation and liberation that exists when one is finding their identity.

Anti-Pro Exhibition     “Pretty for a Black Girl?” deals with the ideas and information that many black women receive starting from a young age. Living in a society that champions european ideals of beauty it can be difficult for a young black girl to navigate thru her own identity when it is not shown in a positivelight. This difficulty is represented within the abrasive textures, patterns, and aggressive application of paint. The weight of these ideals loom over her and sit upon her shoulders yet she still floats, chinhigh, strong.

Anti-Pro Exhibition        The piece “Be a Lady?” deals with the information that many young girls receive while growing up. We are often taught that to be a lady means to only operate under a set of rules that are deemed feminine and appropriate. The concentric circles , gradients and shifts of space represent the duality of masculine and feminine energy that exists, yet when unable to be expressed causes us to become stuck and trapped within this narrow way of thinking.  From this stagnation the figure becomes void of any emotion or personality becoming manikin like, without freedom to express.
