January 27 - February 25, 2022
From Bosque Gallery:
“As stated by Tumelo Mosaka in his book, Negotiating Identity, “Artists, writers, and academics have engaged in a critical debate about the meaning of African culture in a postmodern, global society.” As an African-American Artist myself, issues of identity, race, and globalization are meaningful and personal. I am questioning the ways in which identity is shaped in regards to family, ethnicity, and geographic location. My focus is the cultural identities of black males that include those from the African Diaspora. This includes African-Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, and Afro-Latinos.
To start, I am looking at the foundational family relationships that shape men by going back to the connection between a father and son. Questions I am asking in regards to this topic are: How is fatherhood defined? Are we looking at a new generation of nurturers? What are major challenges fathers of today are facing? My current body of work is a series of portraits that display the bond between a father and son of African-Americans.”
