Physical labor is heavily reflected in my artistic process. It is how I stay connected to my cultural roots. I make my works using the construction tools my parents used to create a livelihood to support me. These materials serve as translation tools that convey my story and the conversations I want to initiate through my works. In this work, wooden strips are carved and hammered into place on top of a heavily textured surface.
All original works, such as this, come with a Certificate of Authenticity when purchased.
