Rainbow Baby, 2020
This work commemorates the infinite connectedness of the Black diaspora despite the historic and systemic oppressions that challenge their humanity. Across various systems over centuries, Black family units suffer looming dangers of separation, while enslaved Indigenous African peoples had no control over the structure of their families, let alone their lives for hundreds of years. The artist depicts their infinite connectedness despite the estrangement they’ve survived by seperating light using a glass prism revealing a spectrum of divinely connected hues. A viewer surrendered in gaze sensed Rainbow Baby touch their abdomen. This spiritual enigma is described by the artist as the work provoking recognition of the birthplace of separation and connection for humankind.
