Ascension of Weary Bones
Wood, Repurposed Denim, Resin, Raw Pigment, Enamel Paint, Steel Wire, Industrial Foam
37W X 57H X 20D
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.
