Mixed Media - Original Paintings, Digital And & Mixed Media
TO SET AFLOAT No. 1 "Yemayá Oversees Dark Waters" came to life here in my studio in Asheville, North Carolina, USA. This is a dreamscape (inner landscape.) It is Fusion-Collage-Paintography that offers space as narrative art that explores an unfolding story and symbolizes change with compassion
This series was created for Black History Month It narrates the story of how, unlike indentured servants, or those in search of a brighter future, African Americans came as enslaved people and looks at such an arrival from the perspective of positive futures for all concerned.
"Yemaya Oversees Dark Waters" is FUSION ART. It acts as a reminder that disparate parts, such as you see here, can work together. As Friedrich Nietzsche said, "In pain there is as much wisdom as in pleasure; both are the two conservative forces of the species."
Generally, I borrow bits from my canvases (gardenia as a moon) adding a collection of photos, drawings or sketches to join in the collage. Look for hidden characters. (Yemaya in the storm clouds.) After all this comes together, I take a photo of that collage. This goes to Photoshop for digital manipulations and rendering.
