I use paint two-and three-dimensionally to create vignettes of a world shaped by black, femme spirituality, liberation, and autonomy. I utilize the visual potential of darkness and the erotic materiality of texture and paint to create experiential black-on-black portraits, planets, creatures, and landscapes that reflect black, queer ideas of value, beauty, and intimacy. Using a unique knowledge of modern paint technology, I experimentally incorporate craft and beauty materials and techniques into my paint-making to describe cultural legacies of embodied empowerment and vulnerability with an intuitive hand-making practice. I pull inspiration from metaphysical psychology, sci-fi, and Queer and Womanist praxi, as well as astrology, geological phenomena, and textures of the black body. The work celebrates self-adornment, connection to our planet and beyond, and the complexity of internal experiences - emotional, sensual, genetic, and more - with an awareness of the ability of blackness and queerness to subvert heirarchical oppressive systems and earthly ideas of time/space, interpersonal connection, and the human body.
