Black and white drawings,paintings, photographs, prints and installations address feelings of outrage, polarization and frustration rising from the recent fatal shootings and use of force incidents involving police and black men. Content and the visual syncopation created by a limited yet contrasting pallet offer a dynamic platform spurring discussion and reflection to better understand people from diverse backgrounds with the intention of harmony and community.
