At the core, my work is often about longing for community. So much of my life has been a desire to feel enveloped in space and included. Much of the work that I make is a dissection of this desire to belong and the convoluted relationships between my intersections, and how this conflict resonates throughout so many Black and LGBTQ+ people’s experiences.
"I approach my work as an anthropological act of cultural preservation and inspection, attempting to visually deconstruct and rebuild notions about Blackness and Queerness, in and outside of these respective communities...This work we do is exhausting. The chance to play a small part in the writing of our history is the only consolation I can find. I work in the tradition of a visual griot, a true historian."
