OF BONE & BREATH
This large scale portrait series is in conjunction with my long term film project, I Be Your Water named after a Sweet Honey in the Rock song. The project explores and honors the lives and work of three Black radical women who have been the heart of Black Liberation and movements for human rights work in NYC.
For the last 3+ years I have been blessed to get to learn about the work of these women who empower and inspire. These larger than life portraits are representations that “saint” them as a form of storytelling.
The portraits will be complete by Fall of 2017. The experimental documentary will be completed by Summer of 2020.
A series utilizing ritual, performance, and assemblage elements that symbolize the Black woman as a healing god. The series is a compilation of self made assemblage pieces and artifacts representing sacred objects and rituals that are utilized in documentary work.
