ODD-I-SEE is a visual voyage, a mini-peek into my ongoing research of both materials and subjects that are common in my works. With this particular collection of images I am exploring codes of identity amongst African-American women and how we possess the necessary ability to be multi- dimensional in our SELF expressions. ODD-I-SEE is inspired by the intricate design of the persons behind their “face-value”.
I am expressing my interest in layers and multidimensionality through the mediums of plaster frescos and sgrafitttos. Put simply, I paint with pigment and ink on “semi-wet” plaster. The plaster is applied to the board in several colors, designs and patterns to arrive at my visual inquiries. Fresco is to paint on wet plaster and sgrafitto is simply ‘to scratch’ into a surface. The word Graffiti derives from this word. I find this to be a very challenging yet rewarding process.
