Rest is a form of resistance 

When rest isn't afforded to all, it becomes an imaginative space. Tricia Hersey said "My rest as a Black woman in America suffering from generational exhaustion and racial trauma always was a political refusal and social justice uprising within my body." I am investigating rest, through various mediums. 


"The formal qualities of black abstract art makes reference to both the contemporary and historical black experience. In moments of grief, emotion seeps onto the canvas in ways that can’t otherwise be conveyed."  -Shantay Robinson
