AFI ESE ART
Fine Black conceptual narrative portrait artwork
A journey of discovery
Afi's works explore an artistic juxtaposition of good and bad nostalgic narratives of southern rural-Texas life during times of abuse, tragedy, and assimilation as well as family, triumph, and advancement. Each piece is an invitation for the viewer to find the joy and pain within the pieces' compositions and, hopefully, themselves.
As our country moves forward in the quest for equality and inclusion, it is important to open majority-occupied spaces to people of color and the art world is no exception.
Afi's recent works have taken shape during the 2020-21 COVID-19 pandemic quarantine period and that isolation has produced a stream of consciousness that is constantly interpreting past events in present time. The focus is self-reflection and forcing the world to see us.
