"Nest" mixed media on paper, 30x22.

My current body of work is introspective, an intuitive response to the presence of artificial boundaries in my life — race, gender, age, and class. These drawings explore the abstract nature of these forces as they push and pull one another across an emotional landscape. The subsuming relationship of dark and light spaces represents both an interior and exterior struggle and its impact on the psyche.
