The works in this collection exhibit of all the artist's held living an African-diaspora, Native, Black, and Post-Colonial Antebellum American experience thus far. Fulfilled creations display layers of material and gesture present more than aesthetic achievement being live venues of expressive dialog holding history, culture, and life. Freely crafted with high focus on the present moment these paintings are "freestyled" publicly and privately. Natural and unnatural sounds, lights, colors, rhythms, and environmental ques aide focus in the space of efforts while adding to the work's developments. Considerable layering of gestures in gold, silver, oil, acrylic, and ink introduces collages of familiar and distorted imagery changing with light and perspective. Through years of work and study a comfort has developed layering and mixing varieties of material and technique. To this extent works are created start to finish with the sole goal of capturing the complete experience.
