On Purpose

a practice in defiance and triumph.

Someone asked me if I created this piece after a break up. On the contrary, I drew ON PURPOSE when I was falling in love. Inspired by Ntozake Shange’s poem Sorry, I claim that loving is not a mistake — not something to be feared. I assert that I love on purpose.

I was able to create this piece with the funding, exhibition space, and support of Art Crop. WASHING RICE is a part of my collection, ARRIVING IN BETWEEN.

Completed December 2018.
