These works were made this year, in 2018. They are large scale gouache paintings, reflective of the systemic disparities of Baltimore.

“To be black in the Baltimore of my youth was to be naked before the elements of the world, before all the guns, fists, knives, crack, rape, and disease. The nakedness is the correct and intended result of policy, the predictable upshot of people forced for centuries to live under fear” Ta-Nehisi Coates, "Between the World and Me"
