Art works that quench the hungry thirsts of mans technical clichés in societies identities. That of which are driven by metaphor’s, layers of dreams, symbolism, and neomannerist portraiture. This work is considered spiritual, giving grand narrative depiction’s of man interpretations.
So yes, it is intended to be consumed.

Faith [in] Action?
Another show that I am involved in is the Faith[in]Action show that questions the involvement of Christian responses to the Black Lives Matter Movement. This show is exciting to me because I consider my work a direct result of equitable balances in society.

Faith [In]Action? and Hands Up Don’t Shoot HER, running January 28 – April 26, represent a collaborative visual arts exhibition presented by United’s Center for Arts, Faith & Culture, Intermedia Arts and Obsidian Arts. The complementary exhibitions held at two locations are inspired by Black Lives Matter. At United, Faith [In]Action? examines the role of faith communities in policing systems. At Intermedia Arts, Hands Up Don’t Shoot HER reflects on the value of the lives of black women.
Exhibited at United, Faith [In]Action? questions or shows evidence of the presence and role of people of faith in response to the overwhelming number of black people who have died at the hands of police and policing systems.
This exhibition features works engaging in a visual dialog that interrogates the response of people of faith (black and white). How does the faith community counter the blatant and recurring acts of injustice reigned upon black lives and the ensuing effect on black communities in our present time? Where does it hold up and where does it lack impact?
Curated by Roderic Southall and Sheryl Schwyhart.
