    My work stems from a place of social skepticism and irrationalism. It investigates subjective morality and implements intuition and observation. I work through what it means to be African-American in a society that comes from a place reeking of hate and abuse. I work through what it means to be a traditional painter and printmaker in a time where the relevance of such media is dwindling. The addition of technology as a new need for human beings to live day to day suggests a decline in the manual and the experimental. It promotes, however, a life of instance and immediacy. My work combats this idea of immediacy in the very nature of oil painting or printmaking. It rejects it and offers a closer look into a perception of the human experience. It also offers a product of which cannot be reproduced through the same medium of which it was created. The images themselves can draw influence from different periods in time and reflects the moral ideas I am interested in describing. My pictures are not to be seen as decorative, but the beauty in seeing humans in such an unwarranted way can be interpreted as decadent in its attempt for a modern truth. Read Less
