Resistance isn’t easy

I haven’t been posting as much as I should.

Vulnerability can be a problem when it comes to making the work because there are too many options. I have so many ideas generating them into reality can be intimidating.

I drove home immediately to pour over a book on black feminist cultural criticism. I felt unsure I may not be depicting this black experience justly even though I desperately want to share.

It’s go time.

It’s time to put it out there and I’m afraid of choking. I cannot let doubt win.

These drawings are an exploration of black female identity. I’m interested in countering the art historical role of black female nudes as a sexual deviants by asserting empowerment through color.
