Color, Cuts and Contour Delineations

Take a break from the dank and drink in the color, whimsical line play and personal stories at 5 Points Art Gallery + Studios in Milwaukee, WI at “Color, Cuts, and Contour Delineations” Exhibition.

I am showing several new recently completed fiber works along with Anwar Floyd-Pruitt (Madison, WI) and Spencer Hutchinson (Chicago, IL).

The exhibition runs from February 5, 2021 until March 28, 2021.

The opening reception is from 6-9 p.m. on February 5, 2021 with an artist talk starting at 7 p.m. (CST) in person and via ZOOM. I’ll share the link when i get it.

Utilizing 100-foot extensions of rope, twine, and yarn wrapped, woven, tied and embellished with recycled beads, ribbon, pearls and tape to symbolize natural hair, I am inviting the audience to discuss microaggressions against black women and our hair.

Inspired by Grace Jones

Thanks to pandemic protocols, images from Nottingham Contemporary (UK) exhibition about Grace Jones are online.

See the exhibit HERE.

Ive always loved Grace Jones for her fully unapologetic self expression. She is a true original.

Caution Baggage Cart

Over Christmas break I left all the baggage 🧳 of 2020 behind in this cart to clear my way forward in 2021. And then other carts showed up so clearly, I have more baggage to excoriate.

Inspiration by Jacob Hashimoto

I was first taken with Jacob Hashimoto images on Pinterest and found myself collecting his works for my inspiration board over and over again.

So imagine how tickled I was to learn TSGNY was hosting a virtual artist talk with him this Fall.

I had many questions about how he assembles his kites, the materials he uses and how he transports his large installation works. He answered all this and more.

It was an illuminating and inspiring talk. See for yourself…

Silky Dreads

Cotton rope, wool, acrylic and reflective yarns, thread, satin & cotton ribbons, pearls, pom poms and eyelash thread.

I Am My Hair; reflects on politics and mystery of black hair…

Blacky Black Blanket

Precision tied black zip-ties on 10’x5′ black fishing net draped over 8′ steam armature….

The blanket is weighty and casts light shadows against the wall.

Part of a new series of works exploring the impact of implicit bias.
