Painting: Acrylic and Textile on Paper and Other. This was the first piece I completed in this body of work. I created a 2x2 inch square tessellation with paint, I then scanned the image into my computer and created a transformation to get the background. I then printed the pattern with an ink jet printer on paper. I then painted a portrait with black paint over the pattern to get this final look. I created the pattern with Pan African color scheme to create a little more representation in the art world and to resemble Batik patterns. I would like individuals who see this painting to connect with it in a way where it empowers you to resist the current day narrative.
