ARTIST STATEMENT :

“Responding to 'Unapologetically Blak', I made new work about BLAK LOVE. It carries the practice of BLAK LOVE as sovereign, unapologetically Blak, strong, beautiful, unconditional and weaves BLAK LOVE into the future and through city streets. Carrying passengers on a journey of BLAK LOVE, holding images of weaving, bush dyeing, storytelling, and sovereign ways of being Unapologetically Blak.”
