This small collections of acrylic paintings known as "Faces" is when ZNT Arts fell in love with life, love, art, motherhood and painting.
Soul Flower, Blue Lady, Chanel and Soul Music are the "Faces"
They are gentle reminders to smell the flowers, to remember when you are blue you are always surrounded by love, to take space in quiet solitude and enjoy the vibes of good music.
A collection of paintings and drawings over the years that depicts growth and varied use of art mediums.
This is a series of painting and drawing techniques associated with the combined use of charcoal and acrylic paint. This combination uniquely highlights the beauty that is the black female experience.
Circa Winter 2017-2018
Black Men Matter was born out of being constantly bombarded via social media and the news about the state of racial tension in America. But more importantly the way in which black men and women are seen in America and all over the world. There is numerous offensive incidents of police brutality, mockery of ones skin color and ethnic features picked apart under the guise of art and the social advertising of products. Nether or less what comes to mind currently is the struggle of the black man often wrongfully accused, misunderstood and thrown under the bus so to speak. Created with much love and intention. There is always more works to be added to this series as it is an ongoing conversation.
Circa Fall 2017
These series of anatomical heart paintings were created out of a need to document my journey through a health challenge centered around a stroke that occurred in April of 2017. Here I depict light and darkness juxtapose next to each other to convey some feelings I may have felt during my recovery process. Sometimes feelings are abstract and hard to articulate. These articulate my feelings through the application of acrylic painted on lightly primed wood canvas.
