This is a culmination of 30 years of exploring African Spirituality and its survival in the Western hemisphere. These paintings on exhibit are a selection of the Genesis of that exploration from the first two decades when I was inspired to give homage to the my first Religious experience living in My Great Grand Aunts backyard Church in Rae Town in Kingston, Jamaica.
Love that The Chicago Theological Seminary has recognized my contribution to the conversation on African Spirituality.  Love that this is the second time in three months I have been invited to a University, to share my works (at the Harvard Divinity School)
Africans at home and abroad endured thru Faith. Faith in a higher Order, represented by the Pantheon of Ancestral Spirits.  It has manifest itself from Baptist to Vodun. The Spirits have survived superstition to reverential belief.  They have contributed immensely to all creative discipline in Western Culture. The series began as a tribute and became a life long Cultural and Spiritual conversation with the Public.  Come join us as we give respect.
“Thanks and praises to the Most High.”
