Metaobjects

In American colonalization, oppressors forced African and Native people to abandon their language, religious beliefs, cultural clothing, hairstyles, and more. This kind of activity revealed itself in the form of workplace and school policy discrimination that criminalizes Black women and girls for wearing hairstyles with natural hair textures, braided extensions, or Locs.

My assemblage sculptures are manifestations of our resilient Black feminine energy. I am interested in exploring identity politics and social bias through materiality and objects.
