"Identity has been a topic of conflict since the beginning of time. It has been the cause of wars, apartheids, and genocides, but why? Why does identity create so much hatred while also simultaneously bringing together communities? I explore the idea of identity and normative views through my use of color in my portraits. My purpose is to convey the concept of self and individuality while contradicting conventional beliefs of race. The facets of intersectionality such as race are socially constructed and can often act as a barrier to relationships and human connections. As an artist, I desire to create dialogue around the layers of humanity through portraiture."
