ABOUT THE SHOW

 

"This body of work is a deep dive into my internal process of self-rediscovery. There are themes of personal power, self-love, sexuality, faith in oneself, and faith in a benevolent higher power. Glitter and gold are prominent elements of the art. Not only am I attracted to the look of gold and the way that it reflects light, but it gives a sense of importance and opulence that I really enjoy, especially with reference to Black hair. I initially intended for this show to center the story of my recent divorce, but I realized that would be focusing on the wrong thing. The real story is of resilience and faith. It’s also a love story to myself. 

 

I titled the show “The Sun Still Shining on Me” because despite the challenges I’ve faced…I’m still here. Still creating. Still loving. Still optimistic about life. And every day when I wake up and see the sun, I get another chance to create the life I’ve dreamed of. The 17 pieces that were chosen for this exhibition are meant to convey different parts of my journey. Much love."
