My work is a commentary on the concept behind “black” within American society. My work uses the language of media, culture and biblical relationships that demonstrate racial stereotypes, along with classism and American History. The dehumanization layered within police brutality is displayed through a series of materials depicting different aspects within the racial divide thinly hidden beneath American culture. Spanish tree moss, hair, iron, knetting, wool and other materials highlighting different types of killings of the African American. The materials describe black as a separate entity. The experience the history and the pain trapped within the melanated flesh of a neglected people.

These pieces hope to create a conversation on the white gaze by comparing it to the duality of the black experience. These are meant as an explanation of my understanding of what the media shows as the black identity, the simplistic and generic view built by a society that forms their opinions based on an abstracted view, which quickly lead to our emotional demise.
