ARTIST STATEMENT:The Capture delves into the subconscious mind of a black heroine and the ephemeral quality of her thoughts and experiences. As she uncovers her special abilities, through a succession of serendipitous events, she comes to understand how these moments of self-realization can be so very temporal.
With this new series of drawings, Iâ€™ve been intrigued by the black female body as an icon in contemporary imagery. Iâ€™m piqued by the idea of how her physical size is suppose to dictate a certain set of ideals and behavior. The Capture is the initial phase to constructing a non-typical black female heroine persona.
