Previously my works were informed by issues of representation of the female body. As the work developed I shifted to representations of microscopic imageries of cells that formulate the interior design of fatty tissue. These tissues made interesting subjects as they attached themselves to ligaments, growing like fungus on stale food.
This present body of work explores the metamorphosis of malignant cells as they expand, disfiguring the womb at a chronic stage. These sometimes may cause serious gynecological complications for women of the African Diaspora –many black women eventually experience this. My work is focusing on painterly studies of the theme ‘Everything That Festers’, as they consist of abnormal generating fibrotic cells within the womb. I am exploring monochromatic painting, focusing on the effects of illuminating light on my previous installation pieces, through chiaroscuro and linear drawing with paint and charcoal.
