My artwork focuses on identity, sexuality and the female figure. The works are inspired and shaped by my own personal experiences, the historical and the natural world. The series is a collection of black and white self portraits surrounded by flora. I use monotype printmaking techniques to illuminate my concepts. Monotype provides intense values which evoking a mood of loneliness and quiet. Varying values of black help create an all encompassing darknesses that surrounds the nude figure and the flowers which are used as symbols of sexuality, femininity and race. The flora also act as metaphors for enslavement and the cultural appropriation of the black female figure. Through the work I attempt to discover more about myself and the history I am a part of.
