Studio #231 at will be closed for Dec 3rd JC Friday, so i’m sharing these in studio photos for your virtual viewing pleasure instead.
Microaggressions are subtle, everyday interactions or behaviors that communicate hostile, derogatory or negative racial messages or assumptions toward historically marginalized groups.
The weight of these daily interactions has very real consequences… stress, anger, frustration, self-doubt and ultimately feelings of powerlessness and invisibility.
LOCATION: Art150 at 150 Bay Street, Downtown Jersey City. Enter the building on the corner of 1st Street and Provost and ride the elevator up to the second floor.
ON VIEW: Now through January 8th 2022
Walk towards studio #231 and you will find the Free Your Mind installation.
Where you can write a statement about implicit bias or a microaggression you have experienced on a ribbon and then tie your ribbon onto the net to release this story from your personal narrative.
Or you can share your story virtually here.
Later, I will weave your ribbon into a protective blanket.
zip tie and entrails close up view…

I’ve been tearing up monoprints and collaging them…
I’ve been experimenting with self portrait monoprints. I’m not sure, if I like these or not.

When the pandemic delayed my artist residency with NOW Friends, Nairobi Kenya, I took measures into my own hands and spend hours scouring the internet looking at images and video of beading, fabric and african art.
This is the result of my self styled homeschooled virtual artist residency.
Cider Six Packs and various single use bottle caps strung and knotted with blue and white polyurethane rope.
Inspired by my home school virtual artist residency with NOW Friends in Nairobi Kenya.
See this work at Art Fair 14C and Untitled Art Fair during Miami Art Week.
