My paintings display what is in me- tribal Africa crossed with urban blight." A lot of bad stuff went down in East New York when I was growing up. By layering the paint on the canvas, I am also layering the experience of what i saw: tragedy, loss, confusion, hope, prayer, fantasy, survival. "These things swirl around us all the time."
