Being born to Jamaican parents in a small town in Texas, I feel fortunate to have gotten to experience the confusion that is growing up as a biracial, first-generation American man. I was able to, in my youthful ignorance, test and blur lines that I didn't know existed. My art is a tenuous and experimental engagement in blurring these lines on a public scale; allowing the loose expression of color to side step the mind's seeming need to categorize and understand in accordance to race, ethnicity, and stereotypes. My goal is to give you a moment to point to your impression of this art and to ask, "In this, what is the intention of my heart" and maybe learn to love a little bit better.
