Currently part of the Prisoner of Love exhibition at @mcachicago curated by Naomi Beckwith - - Honestly, I’m floored (shook !!!) at my painting hanging in a show with this list of artists (but also: hanging next to the great Kerry James Marshall !!! 😭 I remember devouring his retrospective at the Met Breuer not so long ago and now this !!!)
A few months ago, artist @jenndier sat with me in my studio and we had a long, slow talk. We spoke about my use of color, my influences, about the paintings accessing a place beyond language, about miracles, and about my process. Swipe for some excerpts from the interview or head to @thecoastalpost site for more🧡
