Abstraction
I have danced around abstraction since the beginning of my career. I did not show my abstract work in exhibitions, thinking that it was not sophisticated enough. The voice of my professor, Mildred Thomas echoed in my head. She noticed early on my proficiency in painting, through works on paper where I used mostly symbols to express personal incidents and stories. At that time, I was fascinated with the earliest forms of writing and communication. I studied Cuneiform writing, pictographs and cave paintings. These ways of telling stories connected me to growing up in NC where I spent endless hours in a dimly lit dining room, telling myself stories, while illustrating them as I delved into train of thought. I created a world of my own. To return to it is cathartic.
