The topics explored in my work focuses on my personal biography, history, and an investigation into political issues. In addition to my interest in historical and social politics, I am invested in the black subjects across the African Diaspora (done by research conducted by myself). Within my abstract paintings, I create a sense of control using the grid format to apply the mixture of what I call “tiles” which creates a geometrical balance. I am often incorporating physical objects and colors that help enhance my paintings while also tying directly to the subject. My choice of objects derive directly from the research I conduct and help push the concept/story further by implementing it directly into the painting along with a significant color palette that often has meaning and tells a story on it’s own. With all of this I hope to reflect a kind of meditation on history that examines both the past and present and its political and social implications within the contemporary context.
