This piece is inspired by Nostalgia, nostalgia is a major theme in my work and however, a spiritual manifestation of vision put together to create a narrative; these manifestations are highly related to the people of the African continent and appear rather “strange” to people in the diaspora; thereby leaving the viewer curious and with a wistful affection to wanting to know more about my narrative.
Identity crisis is a major theme in my work; a period
of uncertainty and confusion in a person’s sense of identity becomes insecure, typically due to a change in their expected aims or role in society. “identity crisis is part of the reparation of slavery and colonialism”.
colonialism also plays a major theme in this narrative, This was a means through which Africans lost their “negritude” and are a major theme in my work as I used my mixed media technique which plays along with aesthetics and social commentary to highlight these tragic issues
