“UNTITLED”

THIS UNTITLED PIECE IS  CURRENTLY MY NEWEST PIECE. I HONESTLY DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY ABOUT IT TO BE TRUTHFUL, I FEEL MANY THINGS AND THINK MANY THINGS ABOUT THE FACES THAT ARE PORTRAYED IN THE PAINTING. I LEAVE IT UP TO THE VIEWER TO INTERPRET.THE DIMENSIONS ARE 17X14 AND WAS DONE WITH ACRYLIC PAINT AND SOFT PASTELS AND CHARCOAL ON MIXED MEDIA PAPER.

“3 INTERPRETATIONS OF THE DISCOMBOBULATED”

THIS IS A TRIPLET PIECE THAT I RECENTLY COMPLETED. I LIKE THE NOTION OF REPETITION AND THE NOTION OF IDEAS MORPHING AND GROWING AND EXPANDING INTO SOMETHING THAT YOU INITIALLY DID NOT INTEND. I WAS INSPIRED OFF OF FRANCIS BACON AND PABLO PICASSO AS WELL AS AFRICAN ART. THE DIMENSIONS FOR ALL THREE ARE 17X14 AND WERE DONE ALL ON MIXED MEDIA PAPER.

“KILL THE COLORED MAN”

“KILL THE COLORED MAN” COMES AS A RESPONSE TO THE FACT THAT PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE GETTING BRUTALLY MURDERED MORE OFTEN THEN NOT. POLICE OFFICERS AND SOCIETY VIEWS THE BLACK MAN THE COLORED MAN AS A THREAT, AS A MENACE, SOMETHING TO BE AFRAID OF, SOMETHING TO DEMONIZE. I THINK OF SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND AS YOU CAN SEE BY THIS PAINTING I VIEW MY PEOPLE THE SAME WAY. DIMENSIONS ARE 16X20 ON COLD PRESS PAPER. DONE IN ACRYLIC PAINT AND SOFT PASTELS.
