Description/Abstract

Artist Statement

Drawing from my childhood, I reimagined and modernized what traditional Catholics saint portraiture would look like with the unlikely and seemingly undeserving black youth as the subjects.

Objectives I wished to achieve were dynamic use of light and shadow through portraiture while perfecting my painterly/impressionistic technique. Artistic influences which inspired my work were generally any and all religious portraiture of the seventeen and eighteen hundreds.
