Periphery Series 

This oil pastel series seeks to address the marginalization of black people in contemporary society. The presentations of the subjects wearing hoodies are a commentary on negative connotations in certain spaces that ignore full black humanity in the presence of stereotypes. The body language that is seen in the poses symbolizes an introspective look at existing in unwelcome spaces, where emotions can range from nervousness to resignation.
