Beyond a reflection of contemporary black culture the work in my MFA thesis exhibition functions as a self-portrait that exposes the maturation of myself as a person and artist. This development is represented through the process by which the work has been created and the framing of the content. Though the work primarily engages black subjects the exhibition is not just about race; instead, it is framed by race as it addresses other issues that transcend racial boundaries. In this thesis I will discuss my identity and the concepts that have influenced my work.
