Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, politicized in Washington, DC, liberated in Los Angeles, CA; I am a visual artist, educator, musician, surfer, and photographer. Evolving into a multimedia sculptor using found materials as metaphors to explore complex socially constructed ideologies and paradigms. Confronting issues of social justice and globalized racial injustice; I creates multilayered sculptural assemblages as altars to become vehicles for quiet contemplation and dialogue.
Using free floating signifiers, I draw inspiration from cultural phrases, history, and science fiction. Materials are carefully selected, adorned, burned, and rebuilt within the formal elements of design to rearrange narratives that combine the invisible historical threads of each object. In deconstructing the concept of the altar as a sacred object, while simultaneously incorporates the Orisha mythologies from religions of the African diaspora. I considers these sculptures to be a contemporary representation of an innate ancestral history.
