"Only when it's dark enough
can you see the stars"
FLXST Contemporary, Chicago, 2020
The title “Only when it's dark enough you can see the stars” is taken from Martin Luther King's last Speech (1968). The phrase has a lingering sense of foreboding while an optimistic release. I felt that would resonate with everyone at this present moment in time.
This body of work was done at my home in Chicago, which became my studio during the early stages of the lockdown. Luckily for me, an unfurnished living room sufficed to keep my anxiety in check and my ambitions alive.
