Mr. Bojangles Dances for Himself
Wood, Repurposed Denim, Resin, Raw Pigment, Enamel Paint, Steel Wire
52 w x 48h x 13 d
In these works, the artist uses repurposed denim, which the artist patches, sews, and mends, along with wood, paints, and pigments, to construct an abstract body that melds memories, cultural artifacts, and oral histories together. Surface markings inherent of "tribal scarification," representative of ancestral histories and experiences.
