Eye to Eye - Present beauty

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eye to Eye refers to Audre Lorde’s essay in her book Sister Outsider and is an homage to the dynamism, activism and agency of black women in a series of portraits, which strives to counter the negative white reactions to Blackness and counter the harmful impacts of internalized racism and sexism on self-esteem and relationships between Black women.


This series of paintings are a colourful meditation on listening, listening to what black women are telling us. Listen.

The transformation of silence into language and action.
And were we these wings  And we're these wings our freedom.
