Art Description

Photography: Digital, Manipulated and Photo on Paper.

32x40 limited edition Print on Hahnemühle Paper
Signed on back
Printed with an additional 5cm white border

Paintings from the Golden Age continue to captivate and haunt me. I have long felt inspired by the golden baroque frames, rich tints and hues and the otherworldly technical skill. At the same time, I feel a disconnection to these works as well. I remain haunted by the historical representation of black faces in classical western art and culture. Though a photographer, not a master painter, I feel overtaken by the desire to create contemporary imagery with hints of renaissance references celebrating the often hidden beauty of people of color.

In this series I loosely combine traces of African and African American culture with renaissance undertones. Specifically focusing on African American hair which is often labeled unkempt.
