acrylic on found old Chicago wood
19x11.5x2 inches

"Splintered Tongue" is a social commentary on organic material appropriated to fit within a modernized narrative. The industrial material used in this artwork is of an old piece of wood retrieved from a South side Chicago scrap yard. It was once used for its support, endurance, and strength which eventually was discarded once the appropriated function or use was no longer needed. Its flesh depicts time or a weathered life while at the same time being a document of the philosophy it was shaped to live by.

Food Pantry: Canned-Goods

acrylic on tin cans
17x12x3 inches

This is an artwork of canned goods given out at local pantries, the only source of food for many low-income individuals. These tin cans are painted with the pattern of writing paper, the very first paper we used to learn to write our name. The first learned vocabulary to mark your identity. In this case, these canned goods mark an economic identity that furthers a dialogue on the value associated with food and which class systems within society one belongs to.
With Covid19 and the loss of employment, food that middle-class Americans once identified as low-quality or cheap and only for those of lower class or in dire straits, is now valued for its essential source of nutrition needed to survive.
