Artists' Statement: "As a Black queer woman living inside a world that is constantly trying to kill meRespite, Reprieve, and Healing: An evening of Cleansing is my latest work for my 2019 thesis solo show. Elements of performance, live music, sculpture and improvisation is the artistic foundation of this piece. I’m tired, and I’ve been tired for a very long time. Imagine the collective fatigue of being Black, now imagine US living in our healing and dignity. This piece is an ode to both my exhaustion and my respite.'
