Exhibit Title: My African-American Experience

Exhibit Notes
"My art is both personal and humanistic; and clearly encompasses social, political and humorous approaches to my African-American experience. I use a number of pop icons to illustrate stereotypes that deal with black imagery such as watermelons, the Cream of Wheat man, the Quaker Oats man, Uncle Ben, Aunt Jemima and others. My mixed collages are not timid. My adaptation of old master-works, the underlying humor is a condemnation of the racism that has infected our nation and mankind in general. It is through the black experience in American that I comment on the often sad-legacy of man. I force my audience to confront our country’s disenfranchised, as well as the way in which familiar icons have been used to perpetuate racist stereotypes."
