Each time I make a work I do something different. Because materials are the grammar of my visual language, individual pieces ask for different materials. Working with rust, scrap materials, photographs, prints, etc. allows me to visually explore and give structure to my values and ideas.
I am quite lucky to have been born and raised in Harlem with such a rich background and upbringing. Through materials I visually convey and give meaning to my events and experiences.
I am continually pushed to ignore perceived limitations. For this, in part, I have Bourgeois, Hammons, Kiefer, Cornell, Schwitters and Rauschenberg to thank.
