Based on the poem of James Weldon Johnson and the trials and tribulations of Augusta Savage, Lift Every Voice is my most ambitious series to date and dedicated to the strong joyous black women in my life. While I find that traditional methods of painting- figurative and portraiture- best speaks to the soul and depict real life experiences, I have also spent the last decade perfecting the art of dynamic storytelling through creating and illustrating comic books. What better way to tell a story than by constructing a canvas similar to a comic book panel? This serious will include traditional canvases and my acquired objects .
Instead of just displaying my art on a wall in normal traditional form. I want to give my audience a new way of experimenting and viewing my art. By inserting a new method in my practice, I will be adding an extra dimension to transform the perception of a space.
