Bella's Pine, 2018
Pine Intaglio Prints on Watercolor Paper
9 x 15"
Yes, I was born a creative from a long line of resilient prolific & mystic storytellers. The process of art making is intuitive, instructive and most necessary for me. I am quite sure if you cut me I would bleed paint, peel me and a print would unfurl, chip away at my brain and painted prose would spill out from my core!
Born hard-wired to replicate what I see, the creative process is an intuitive one for me that is greatly informed by the mystic beauty of the natural world and my experiences with death and impermanence. In my infancy, it was the death of my mother followed by its relentless recurrence over the course of my lifetime that has driven me to seek out, replicate and create all that I can and cannot see to explore these confounding mysteries. I breath, I paint, I live in an attempt to capture what I have observed in my travels around the world, over land and sea, and find place in it. A Jamaica born, Brooklyn based artist, I use artifacts from my life experiences pulled from memory and observation, my work is layered in process: Mixed media paintings, printmaking, sculpture, paper making, Installation, photography/video essay & prose combine to create my own archetype, a universal language of images found and remembered that speaks to the diversity of my heritage, lived experiences and reverence for the mystic found in our natural world.
