To Wade in Troubled Waters

Created over this summer during his time as Gallery 263’s Artist in Residence, To Wade in Troubled Waters, a mixed media collection of oil paint, acrylics, and wood, recalls the transatlantic slave trade and the continuous relationships Black people of the Atlantic have with the ocean as a result of such unimaginable generational trauma. Exposed bits of wood in the work look like boats from a distance, but moving closer reveals intricate faces–they actually represent Black faces under the waves.
