Stories That End in Freedom
Through the works in this exhibition, the artist explores themes of Black and Indigenous American perseverance, resilience, and healing. The abstract paintings and figurative collages here were inspired in part by the fluidity and power of water and its ability to transport people across the world and across sensory experiences.
