The term Eurocentricity, is a term originally coined in the 1980s referring to European exceptionalism, placing Europe and Europeans in the center of intellectual thought. 

Foucault, in "The Archeology of Knowledge" ask us to "question the document" and it's relation to the struggle between the perpetuation of popular history versus general history as well as who and what institutions perpetuate popular, reductionist, history. Popular history allows for false notions of superiority to exist and persist.

I create pieces that decontextualize the space and emphasize freedom and transcendence of blackbodies.

I aim to challenge the documents of popular art History that perpetuates erasure of Black bodies. In challenging the document I create a new narrative.  I want to show Black women in positions that reference classical paintings.
