As a way of exploring queerness and it’s relationship to spirituality and ritual practices and building on previous work, “Altars: Black Queer Spirit Work”will explore how we as black queer subjects engage with spiritual practice and create rituals as a way of formulating meaning; self-determining constructions of freedom and resistance through a constant state of reimagining queer realities.
Signs of Godis a series of digital collages in which I articulate the complicity of Christianity in the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade and the subsequent religious colonization  by various sects of the Christian church that continues on the continent today.   The images used in the creative process are from my own visual archive including most recently photographs made in Ghana and New Orleans.
